Open Source Footwear

Mud is an easy to manufacture footwear concept that uses lightweight waterproof fabric to protect feet from mud without reducing mobility.
Designed with a how-to guide for open sourcing, it allows for the reuse of woven polypropylene, a material commonly used for bags to preserve rice from humidity in Southeast Asia countries. 

WHY IT'S IMPORTANT

While most of us default to thinking about how the world is gradually going to be taken over by machines and technological advancements, I wanted to use my thesis as an opportunity to honor the laborers/ rice farmers who should be credited for each grain of rice.
