So, our samples arrived rom Turkey and Pakistan the other day. We ordered some round toe tabi socks aka leather socks. One ankle ballet flat type, and the other kind of like an ankle ballet bootie type.
We have big plans for these socks/shoes, by adding a thin rubber sole , to preserve the leather under ther sock, and also allow you the feeling of walking barefoot without compromising style.
Here’s a peek at what we’ve got so far, with more to follow……..
We have a few of the black, in sizes 8-11 , so if interested then message us. They fit like a glove, just like wearing nothing on your feet all day .
We will be featuring the most fabulous leather socks on the market this coming Spring Summer season to join our Thaqafah collection.
Leather socks are comfortable and wisks away sweat in your feet as you wear them.
Leather socks have been worn for centuries if not thousands of years, by nations throughout history. The Japanese leather socks are called Tabi and the Arab or “Muslim” leather socks are called khuffs (sock in Arabic ).
If you are into earthing, minimalism,comfortability, or just down right fashion, then our socks will be perfect for you. They have made their way on the runways of Milan and now they will be available for all who would like to sport them.
They will be featured in an array of colors and styles throughout the seasons. They can be worn indoor or outdoors, depending on surface (I wouldn’t recommend rock climbing in them).
Follow us to be notified when purchase will be available, and feel free to ask any questions concerning this new collection of socks.
I don’t if you are aware of the current rave about metal bags or not. But we have good news that our Thaqafah will have a permanent collection of the metal beauties.
They are available at a promo price, and are going fast. They can be worn formally or casually, depending on what you’re wearing.
So we finally got the design worked out for the peshawari sandals. I didn’t share this before, but the first pair of peshawaris that were constructed were square at the toe and they looked too manly.
For those who don’t know, these sandals are worn by men in India and Pakistan, but for the first time they have been styled for women in a feminine way.
Others have tried, but the sandals still have that square toe that makes it look exactly the men’s sandals.
Our collection will come in a pleasant array of colors and beautiful stitching, and will be ready for purchase as soon as they arrive.
Tell us what you think ladies and gents, and it will be greatly appreciated
Soooooo, turns out that Tunisia also has babouche that they produce as well. I have to tell you that these nations have some of the flyest footwear in the world. Right up there with Turkey, Spain, India,Italy, Portugal, and Mexico, in my shoe making masters book.
The designer world has been scoping and copying these styles for years, and it’s time to introduce them to the world at large for who and what they are and come from.
That is what Thaqafah is all about, aiding the artisans of these countries to bring the old with a new modern twist, along with keeping the shoes trendy without compromising tradition and quality.
Love love these shoes (la sigh).
