Start, The Durham Collection of Garments and Embroideries from Albania and Yugoslavia', Calderdale Museums, Halifax 1977, pp. 66-7, Fig. 9B, no. 1936-62. The Bankfield pair were worn by Durham herself and she writes: 'When newly made the soles are soaked in oil till pliable. Then they mould themsleves to the feet, and give the toes and sole a good grip on rocks. The soles of this pair are worn through as I tramped many miles in them.'
