Exotic Vintage Hand-Embroidered Leather-Soled Mojari Slippers
This fun and funky pair of vintage Mojari slippers will make you feel and look like the Queen of Sheba.
Made using the finest vegetable-tanned leather, curl-toed shoes like these are known as "Mojari" or "Khussa" and are typically made in India, but can also be found in Pakistan.
The production of Mojari slippers dates back to the time of Indian kings and queens, almost 5,000 years ago.
In those times, the shoes were embroidered with real gold and silver thread, as well as precious gems and pearls.
These beauties boast the most luxurious apricot-colored silk lining and feature dazzling orange and gold bullion-embroidery on the toes.
The tops and leather soles are connected with reflective gold-tone lame which terminates at the pointy toe in a coil.
As you can see, the vamp features an exotic pointed accent that gives the foot a slender, sexy look.
You will find handwritten inscriptions on the sole of each shoe which includes the size, "37" (a U.S. size 7).
While the soles show only a bit of expected wear, these cool Mojari slippers remain in very good vintage condition.
