Handcrafted metal bags

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.

Peshawaris for ladies just for Thaqafah

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.

New Style India

I say, one has got to love fashion inspiration from around the globe. Why you might ask? The answer is simply that when citizens of the world connect and merge with each other then we get beautiful fusion from art, to food.

I happened to be admiring some a Indian mojari shoes one fine afternoon while surfing the net. Then I did a little searching on my favorite social network Instagram, and decided to hashtag# mojari to see what fashion divas out there were rocking with their colorful footwear.

Low and behold, I discovered a well established and modern brand called Fizzy Goblet, dishing out quirky yet chic designs, but still in the original mojari style.

I absolutely adore these slip on ballerina type flats, made from 100% leather from start to finish, with special attention to small details that will make the wearer feel super feminine and dainty at the same time.

I love them, so I’m sure you’ll love them too. The leather mojaris come in so many colors, and prints that make you want to buy them all…….

Enjoy

Busting out!

It’s been a long 2014 and dreams have come true and others grew.

We are proud to announce our very own private footwear label……Thaqafah. Thaqafah means culture in the Arabic language, and was created by myself owner of Sole Shoe Boutique , Ruqayyah Amrikeeyah.

The brand will be dishing out handmade shoes from across the globe. All leather shoes from start to finish, made by talented artisans from Far East, inspired by traditional style but modern appeal.

After being in shoe business for so many years, and growing up in a shoe loving family of women, eventually creating a collection of my own was a no brainer. My lovely mother had been trying to get me to actually learn how to make shoes. But of course that was just not feasible.

So, we decided to take an approach to the footwear world ,that would be unique, trendy,exciting, colorful, comfortable and most importantly affordable.

We present to you……………
