The Mohinders Leather Shopper is not made out of the same bag-tanned, water buffalo leather as our Slides & Shoes. Instead we've opted for a buttery soft feeling goat leather as different products often require different leathers. In addition, the artisans we're working with to produce The Shoppers are more comfortable working with goat leather.
The People Who Make The Mohinders Leather Shopper
