About the Design
We chose to use the Om symbol for our Ubud design as it reminded us of our stay in this spiritual town in the uplands of Bali. Outside nearly every home are shrines where offerings are made for spiritual merit or objectives. Many of these shrines are etched with the symbol Om, oftentimes painted in a bright yellow or gold. Walking around Ubud, there are also many shrines dedicated to Sang Hyang Widi, the One God in Balinese Hinduism.

I see my path, but I don’t know where it leads. Not knowing where I’m going is what inspires me to travel it.
Solanas are handcrafted, combining traditional techniques and modern sustainable methods. Using recycled fabrics, plant-based dyes, natural jute, and recycled ocean plastics, Solanas inspire greater love for the world and care for the planet.
Emerald of the Equator Collection
When designing the Solana Indonesia Collection, we aimed to capture the feeling of our experience traveling around the islands of Java and Bali. We selected aspects of the culture that struck us most and tried to reflect on this spirit and uniqueness in our designs. Our goal with each shoe was to evoke the breadth of feeling we had on our journey. With each design, we aimed to give the feeling of serenity and peace, calmness and vitality.
