  • From our friends at Artemis Design Co. Their best-selling Kilim Loafer shape pairs handsomely with luxurious hand-knotted Anatolian carpet, known for its velvety texture and fine traditional patterns. All Artemis Carpet shoes are handmade from vintage, hand-sourced Turkish carpets, which means that no two pairs will ever be alike. 

  • 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. As opposed to flat-woven kilims, hand-knotted oriental carpets are known for their “pile,” the small, raised fibers that give it a fuzzy texture and a soft, velvety hand. That quality has made oriental carpets more difficult to work with in the past, but these clever cobblers have found a way to gently shave down the pile while preserving its lush feel and appearance.

  • In these Artemis Loafers, we recommend selecting the European equivalent of the smallest US size you wear. For example, if you are usually a US 10, but sometimes wear a 9.5, order a 42 in the Kilim Loafer. In the open-back Kilim Slipper, order one size larger than that (a 43 for the previous example).

  • 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.
