    How are they made?

    Firstly the finest leathers are sourced from the traditional tanneries in Marrakech where the leather is organically tanned using the same methods and natural agents as across the preceding centuries. This results in a natural material which will have a distinctive scent no longer found in factory cured leathers.

    Traditionally babouche are made from sheepskin, goatskin, camel hide and cowhide to produce a 100% leather shoe, or combined with a wide range of fabric uppers which maybe hand loomed, embroidered, sequinned, tasseled and bejewelled to create a more elaborate shoe.

    Each piece of leather is cut to shape before dying by hand using natural plant based materials. Once the dyed leathers have dried in the hot Moroccan sun they are hand stitched, finished and quality checked. 

    The majority of the process is carried out by men in small workshops but the fine decorative detail is crafted by women who work in their own homes while also being free to care for their children and families.
