What is a Jutti?
Beaded and threaded, embroidered and embellished, in reds and greens and pinks and peaches, there is a beautifully crafted Jutti out there for everyone. Jutti is an Indian word for a shoe with a closed upper attached to a sole. Juttis come in many variations according to regional tradition, period and shoemaker, and are adapted according to the environment and materials.
Exclusively handcrafted by skilled artisans who primarily hail from the Indian state of Punjab, the making of Juttis is a tedious task, involving a lot of different craftsmen. Apart from the traditional thread and bead work, motifs and images have been used to stylize the Jutti with a more modern twist.Some designs are intrinsic and delicate, while some Juttis showcase plain or colored leather with just a few additional add-ons. Punjabi Juttis were originally made out of pure leather with exquisite embroidery and embellishments. It’s is the most versatile piece of footwear. You can wear it from day to day wear, weddings, religious occasions, to parties and festivals. It provides an essential ethnic appeal to the person wearing them.
