Found: Bog Shoes

Photograph by Robert Clark, National Geographic September 2007 pg. 83


For this Found Stuff Friday these aren't exactly my find. They were found on an iron age bog person in Northern Europe. Bog people were thrown into peat bogs, possibly as a ceremonial sacrifice, and their bodies were preserved.

Look how the fit is achieved through slits. It also uses less leather, not to mention how stylish they are! Would this technique work with hand felting? What would you use it for?

I actually used this as part of a dacoupage project. I was amazed by the craftsmanship.
