Our second collaboration with the Nabha Foundation! They've created these burst uppers, using the textile tradition of phulkari embroidery. Each upper is stitched on its own single canvas, by one of the women in the foundation. We love these mules worn with a cropped pant or jean. Handmade in India.


Slip on, fits true to size. Half sizes should size down.


Canvas upper with silk thread. Leather sole. Spot clean with detergent, Tide pen, or stain remover designated for fine washables. Blot, do not rub. Air dry. Please note: due to the handmade nature of this product, small imperfections may exist. Each item is handstitched, hence subtle variations.
