Berber people
Quote:
Berbers are the indigenous ethnic group of North Africa west of the Nile Valley. They are continuously distributed from the Atlantic to the Siwa oasis, in Egypt, and from the Mediterranean to the Niger River. They speak Berber which is an Afroasiatic language and they're able to speak French, Arabic and Spanish. Wikipedia.

A clog is a type of footwear made in part or completely from wood. Clogs are used worldwide and although the form may vary by culture, within a culture the form often remained unchanged for centuries. A klomp is a clog from the Netherlands. Klompen are whole feet clogs. Wikipedia.
Viktor & Rolf fall 2007

Quote:
According to their assistant, Hannah Bonjer, the high heeled klomp (which thanks to the YouTube video embedded below I've now learned is pronounced with a long "o" sound as in "loam", not the short "o" that you hear in "stomp") was the result of their desire to take an authentic folk object from their culture and make it sexy.
