It takes a day...

It takes a day...

Yes, it takes nearly a full day to make one pair of mohinders Men's City Slippers. Why, you might ask? Well, it's a hand-made shoe, composed of hand-tanned leather, which is cut using hand-made leather knives! In addition, each and every strip of leather in the upper must be woven to the insole by a skilled hand. Most of these skilled hands belong to 2nd and 3rd generation mastercraftsmen and mastercraftswomen who take their work very seriously. And, this is just one of the reasons why our Men's City Slippers are such amazing shoes. Here are a few photos of the City Slipper making process, that will help you understand why it takes a day:
