Notes

From our friends at Artemis Design Co.--These ultra luxurious raw silk Ikat loafers are handmade by artisans in Uzbekistan and Turkey. The silk Ikat is hand-woven in small batches by a women's collective, making each collection extremely limited. We love to wear these as a comfortable alternative to more formal shoes, but they style just as well with a pair of jeans, a casual skirt, or shorts.

Details

Upper in 100% silk ikat, hand-loomed by a women's collective in Uzbekistan. 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.

Size & Fit

Women's Loafers run true to size. We only make full sizes, so if you wear a half size, order the next whole size down (for example, a US 8.5 should order a 38). Expect them to feel snug at first, but stretch to a cushy custom fit after time and wear. Our Women's Loafers tend to fit best on narrow to medium width feet, but do stretch beautifully width-wise to accommodate most widths--much like a fine leather shoe.

US Women's 5-5.5: size 35
US Women's 6-6.5: size 36
US Women's 7-7.5: size 37
US Women's 8-8.5: size 38
US Women's 9-9.5: size 39
US Women's 10-10.5: size 40
US Women's 11-11.5: size 41

About Artemis

We believe that beautiful vintage Kilim textiles, made largely by women artists, deserve to be repurposed and preserved for admiration and enjoyment. Artemis makes beautiful things in a slow and careful way, using a treasured team of artisan suppliers and cobblers to ensure that their chain of production is hands-on, handmade, and brings as much pride as the products themselves.
