Woven Flat / Charcoal


Our charcoal is obtained through a magically simple dye process that involves iron + water. Iron dye is colorfast and won't rub off on feet. Each pair is dyed by hand, so natural variation in color tone is to be expected.

Each pair is made by master shoemakers in the shoes’ town of origin: Athani, India. The leather keeps getting softer, richer, and custom-formed to your foot the more you wear them.

Details / Charcoal

Every pair is dyed by hand in a simple process using water + iron. The myrobalan in our leather reacts with iron for a colorfast black, which won’t rub off on your feet or fade over time. Iron-dyed shoes can be easily re-conditioned at home to restore the deepest black; some natural variation in color tone is to be expected.

Size Guide / Woven Women's

Woven Shoes run big and fit best when they start out tight. Take a full size down and use our break-in tips. For example, if you’re normally a 7, order a 6.

If you are normally a half size, take one size down. For example, if you’re normally a 7.5, order a 7.

After a few days of wear, toe box and footbed will mold to your foot for the perfect fit.

Naturally dyed black

The same kind of leather has been used to make shoes in Athani for generations. It’s tanned using just a few ingredients: water, acacia tree bark, and myrobalan (the nut of a Terminalia chebula tree). Every piece of leather is infused with myrobalan, which is also a natural dye; when mixed with iron, myrobalan reacts to create a deep charcoal black. So, we can simply dip our shoe leather in water + with iron for a colorfast black dye that won’t fade or rub off.

Where are they made?
