Created from an original antique/vintage hand embroidered suzani, with a rich design of flowers and foliage in turquoise, chartreuse, and couched metallic gold on a black wool ground.
Embellished with little antique tassel and silk chenille passementerie tabs.
Bound in black suede.
The fabric is mounted on a soft suede inner lining. Sole and 1cm block heel are man-made.
The textile has been treated with an eco-friendly stain guard, based on nano-technology, (and containing absolutely none of those hideous PFOAs that have been slowly poisoning the environment over the last 70 years) which will help to protect the surface of the fabrics from stains, but it should be noted that these couture materials need to be respected and treated with care....be sure to remove them before jumping in puddles please!

Love these shoes but they are sadly not your colour? Please do get in touch if you would like to discuss alternative colour options…
Sustainability Every time a pair of shoes is purchased a donation is made via Ecologi to both offset the carbon involved in production and shipping and make a positive net contribution to combatting climate change....that's 10 trees planted per pair.
Packaging Each pair of shoes is nestled in a high quality presentation box made from 92% recycled materials which can be wholly recycled at end of life (once ribbon and magnetic closure have been removed and recycled separately). Essential as recycling is, it is not carbon neutral, so I wanted the boxes to have as long an after-life as possible. The sturdy construction and minimal branding make them really attractive keepsake and storage boxes that hopefully will prove useful for many years to come. The lid is handstamped with our beautiful calligraphy logo, and zig-zag shred (made from non-coated recyclable bio-degradable paper) is used for the protective padding.
