Moroccan slippers and shoes made in Marrakech
All our models are handmade in Morocco. We have chosen to work only with one of the best families of craftsmen babouchiers that we know and with whom we have established a relationship of trust. Located in human-sized shops in the souk of Marrakech, these passionate local artisans are recognized for their true know-how and the rare and unique knowledge of their trade. We defend a local and sustainable manufacturing process, which allows the babouchiers to live and work with dignity, in the respect of ancestral techniques that are transmitted from generation to generation. Our approach, in favor of fair trade and the protection of the Moroccan heritage, allows us to maintain a more sustainable local economy and to support the sense of value of artisanal work, without sacrificing quality to performance.
Natural tanning, an ancestral process
Our customers can be sure that they are buying authenticity and the transmission of an irreproachable and, of course, unbeatable quality. When we talk about expertise and local craftsmanship, we are also talking about a large number of hours of learning and work on the part of Moroccan babouchiers. The leather material used to make our handcrafted and traditional products comes from a natural tanning and a dyeing based on vegetable dyes. The process, renowned throughout the world, is very slow, but it guarantees a noble, durable and comfortable leather of excellent quality.. Tanning and dyeing the skin in the old fashioned way is a job that can take up to 100 days of work.
