Did someone say shoes? Of course, we did!
We have happily curated these homegrown cool shoe brands from our motherland that speak of their exclusive designs, are unconventional and are handcrafted…basically steals that will always leave you asking for more!
Using Indian fabric and crafts with leather to create a marvel of pop color shoe design collection, The Sole Sisters are a treasure; both in quality and the rich culture it speaks about. The label has been consistently playful with colors for traditional kolhapuris ranging from your childhood candy land to the heart of Mother Nature inspired hues.
Pushing the envelope of the traditional juttis with handcrafted excellence in design – the Needledust fine leather juttis and mules are literally recreating royal old moulds into the perfect shoe of your choice!
Their illustrious collaborations with Abu Jani, Sandeep Khosla, and Swarovski only speak volumes of their artistry in their embroideries and designs that create fresh stories and break norms.
Residing in the pink city of India, Jaipur, is this beautiful multi-brand concept store called Parampara that has been shaping a new design heritage with clothing and accessories curated by its owners. The store’s private label – DeCastro Moda is what we want to highlight.
Taking cues from its origin which is Colombian and fusing it with Indian handloom and our heartland’s delicate embroidery, DeCastro Moda has been successfully creating plush footwear that is full of life and color. While DeCastro is a full-fledged label with more offerings, it’s their fabulous mules and slippers that we can’t take our eyes off currently!
