What can pigeon droppings do for you?

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw what someone from the other side of the world uses to prepare the leather for a pair of shoes for my feet! They collect pigeon droppings and mix it with an amount of water, and then apply the mixture to the animal skins for softening. But what else did this unknown person do?  Check out Pigeon Droppings for yourself.

Does it make you want to wear eco-friendly shoes? I personally like Simple shoes and you can simply search for more simple shoes here.


It is kind of difficult for me to find a relevant Bible verses for this articles; but thanks God I found one. In Ezekiel talked about how God loved and took good care for the people in Jerusalem. However, they were unfaithful to the Lord and displeased Him. Can you believe that God provided them with leather shoes back in those days?

(Update:  I just read this article today that  the oldest leather shoe which is about 5,500 year ago was found.)

Ezekiel 16: 10

I clothed you with an embroidered dress and put leather sandals on you. I dressed you in fine linen and covered you with costly garments.

Hi, Kit
It is very interesting story. Because In ancient Japan women used pigeon droppings for their skin. It was said pigeon droppings made skin smooth and beautiful.
Your Bible quote was very good, too. Keep talking the word of God in the world.
