IGUANEYE (France)

IGUANEYE founded by Olivier Taco in France. He graduated from the National school of design in France (ENSCI) and started his minimalistic journey with a customisable 3D printed sandal in 2012 with his first crowdfunding campaign. His main inspiration ever since has been provided by indigenous Amazonian peoples, who would dip their naked feet into liquid rubber from trees to protect them in the jungle.
