Who designed these shoes?

The styles in our collection are rooted in the region of Northern Karnataka, India. They have always been made (and are still made) by a group of master shoemakers in Athani Village.  

We're dedicated to this heirloom process. To us this means: honoring the designs' origins in Athani, transparency, and equity in our business relationships. 

Collaborative Design

Sometimes we make design changes for a more durable product, or dream up new styles. When we do, it is with respect for the expertise of the shoemakers who work with us. We listen and follow their lead on the aesthetic and functional integrity of each shoe style.
