Artemis - Women's Sumak Kilim Loafers Turkish Carpet

$318.00

This unique style has garnered a cult following, and its limited releases are collected by fans all over the world. Our Sumak Kilim shoes are handmade from one-of-a-kind Turkish carpets, which means that no two pairs will ever be alike. The Sumak Kilim Loafers pictured here are the actual pair that you will receive.

  • Leather sole with 3/4 inch heel.
  • Handmade in Istanbul in a small, family-owned workshop, by cobblers whose families have practiced the craft for generations.
  • Handwoven Sumak Kilim rug upper in wool and silk fibers. Sumak (also spelled Soumak, Soumakh, Sumac, and Soumac) kilims have a stronger weave and a more textural hand than other types of kilim carpets. They are known for their intricate designs that incorporate finely detailed symbols, figures, and representations of animals. The crisp and boldly contrasting blues, reds, and whites often featured in Sumak kilims make them a favorite among our community.
  • The Sumak textile is more structured than the Kilim or Oriental Carpet, which generally translates to a longer break-in period.

          Avoid rain or snow as much as possible. If your shoes do become a little bit wet, that’s ok; just let them dry out completely and continue wearing as usual. They can be freshened up by brushing lightly with a soft clothing brush.
