4. Shoes are made by hand.
5. The chicken legs that the company uses are leftovers from local restaurants.
6. “There is a lot of waste. That is why we are trying to recycle them to get more out of them, ”Ramdhani said.
7. The process begins with dyeing the skin.
8. And then the pieces are sewn together.
9. “You can feel the luxury of this material,” Ramdhani said.
10. The process takes about 10 days.
11. One client said, “We always think of chicken legs as being used for cooking food or chips, but they are used as a shoe material. It's also curious, interesting, and unique. "
