₹5,529.00Price

Ideal to snuggle into, at home or even work, for their warming comfort. Cozy and comfortable these moccasins are made by the frozen hands of the artisans of Ladakh. Hand dyed, hand stitched in recycled woollen uppers they not only distinguish you for their style but for the goodness of promoting a dying art and a crying planet. Step out. Carbon free.

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.
