If there’s a single iconic travel fashion accessory, it’s flip-flops.
The universal footwear is worn the world over by backpackers, package tourists, beach bums and wealthy vacationers alike.
It’s a multi-billion dollar industry.
For British brothers Rob and Paul Forkan, flip-flops also represent a memory, a legacy, a way of life and the avenue toward a dream of establishing a successful business, as well as a network of orphanages.
In 2012, the entrepreneurial pair launched Gandys, a brand of colorful flip-flops they hope to make a household name around the world.
