My husband and I started wearing Slappa's after a recommendation from our friend Jackie who had been to Darwin. She bought her first pair of Slappa's from Denise at the Mindil Market.

Four years later we needed new jandals as our dog had attacked both our pairs. On a holiday in Brisbane we met Nadine who sold us our new Slappa's. She also mentioned there may be an opportunity to bring them to NZ. We contacted Denise and the rest is history. We are excited to have taken the opportunity and look forward to spreading Slappa's all over NZ.

Established in 2010 by Denise Dunn in Darwin, the Top End of Australia, the first shipment of Slappa’s Thongs were snapped up at Darwin’s world famous Mindil Beach Sunset Markets in June 2010.

Slappa’s Thongs are made in China due to the unavailability of manufacturing in Australia. However, we ensure that our thongs are produced safely with no child labour being used in the manufacturing of our products.
