Clog Shops in Jonker Street: "Wooden Clogs" Top 5 Page for this destination Melaka Shopping Tip by bpacker
Melaka Shopping: 86 reviews and 154 photos
Like the the Netherlands, traditional wooden clogs will always be in fashion in Melaka, Malaysia... well, at least to the tourist. I wonder if anybody actually remembered that these clogs were traditionally used in wet places like the kitchens and toilets? The toilet slippers came in plain red, of course, unlike the flowery new designs. Even if you're not keen on these clunky slippers, you can get a mini-me pair on a key chain. Kitsch but cute
What to buy: Pop by Jonker Street and you'll see lots of these clog-making shops . If you can, pester the shop keeper to let you see how those clogs are made. It's a fast-disappearing art as it's difficult to get young apprentices.
What to pay: Expect to pay up to RM20 if you want delicately painted flowers on your toilet slippers...
Directions: Shops are littered around Jalan Hang Jebat (better known as Jonker Street)
Theme: Women's Clothes
