Sagebrush Bark Sandles Found In Oregon.

These sandles are believed to date from 9,300 years or older. They appear to be made from cordage that has been made from sagebrush bark. It would be an interesting project to try and replicate these.

Nomadic State of Mind makes a modern version of these sandals out of polypro rope. I think I'd prefer sage bark, though!

Hi pm, thanks for your comment,and I agree with you. I took a look at the site and I don't think they look very comfortable!
