The rubber chappal goes expensive
If you've ever wondered what the rich spend their money on, once they are done buying designer clothes, cars and houses, think of their everyday expenses.
Today, a certain brand of milk costs Rs 100 per litre and there that cost as much as Rs 22,000 (the wood is sourced from Germany and the pencils have silver tips).
If you thought of the rubber chappal as an inexpensive item that could never go luxe, think again. Havaianas is a Brazilian flip-flop brand that now sells its products in India. Just like cola, this company too claims to have a closely guarded rubber formula used to make their slippers for the past fifty years.
The slippers start at Rs 790 and go up to Rs 3,800. I love the glow-in-the-dark slippers, which seems the perfect solution to finding your slippers at night. Also check out the trendy flamingo print slippers, especially since bird-print trends are a rage internationally..
