My Beachy SideGamze Ates is changing the lives of many women across the globe by creating beach accessories.

My Beachy Side crochet “barefoot sandals” are unique hand-knitted accessories guaranteed to make you the hit of that beach-side wedding this summer. Whether you are lying on the beach, lounging around the house or in search of something to accessorize your shoes, these barefoot sandals are a bold way to accessorize your look.

They also come in a wide variety of colors and styles, including ankle length and knee high. They can also be worn on your hands or as a choker.

My Beachy SideAtes draws inspiration to design her accessories from her Turkish heritage as well as places like Africa, India the Mediterranean and many others.

Ates thought of the idea for My Beachy Side as she was planning her beach-si
de wedding. She was searching for unique accessories when she decided to design her own barefoot sandal.

My Beachy Side is also unique because Ates employs many under-privileged Turkish and Syrian refugee women to craft the design. She has partnered with an NGO to employ hundreds of women, changing their lives with a steady income. Ates describes her Beachy Side makers as “under-privileged and over-achievers.” Each woman hired has the opportunity to name her non-negotiable cost of her labor.

My Beachy Side barefoot sandals range from $28 to $95 depending on the embellishments and length of the style.
