₹5,839.00Price

Hold this dying art of a tradition thats as old as the hills. A tradition that unknowingly remains aligned to nature, hand making recycled woollen uppers and tire-tube unders, without power and pollution. Eco friendly and carbon neutral moccasins that in their sheer simplicity, will grace your occasion.

Situated within the folds of the Karakoram mountains lies this extremely stark and cold trans-Himalayan desert of Ladakh, the hub of a bustling caravan trade between Kashmir, Tibet and Central Asia during the 17-19th century. Frozen in time, the sparse people of Ladakh huddle up at temperatures below -35 C (- 31 F) for almost 8 months of the year sustaining themselves by creating the magic of their hands, down generations. What you find here, you wont find anywhere else in the world!

Locally known as paabus paaboos, these unique warm moccasins are ingeniously hand tie-resist-dyed (Thigma), hand stitched with recycled woolen blankets and some have soles layered with recycled tire tubes. All natural, eco friendly and carbon neutral as no powered machines are used towards their creation.
