Gisele Bundchen, the girlfriend of New England Patriots QB Tom Brady, will be heading to Ireland in a couple weeks to promote her new sandal collection. The eco-friendly flip-flops are called Ipanema. She teamed up with Grendene, and helped to design the the footwear in an effort to help save the rain forest in her native South America.
The idea was hatched so that it could provide an opportunity to help the Kisedje Indians and to create a product for the Ipanema Gisele Bundchen Y Ikatu Xingu footwear collection 2007. The collection of footwear is inspired by the legends of the Brazilian Indian people and the environmental issues that plague them. A portion of the profits of the flip flops will help support the campaign.
Gisele personally hand picked the tribal images that are on the insoles of all of the sandals in the collection.
