Who we are?

OUR MISSION

To provide an opportunity to our valuable customers to own a unique pair of mules or slippers, and to represent our culture and cultural heritage in the best possible way we know, and that's doing what we do best : make handmade unique slippers and mules.

OUR STORIES

First ever documented trace of this craft and our family intertwined together dates back to 1822. Its a officials document from the Ottoman period named simply "Defter esnafa" which in free translation means a notebook of crafts. A list of crafts, craftsmen, and their students. Under the 1822 year we find that master craftsman named Kalajdzisalihovic, promoted his student to assistant, awarding him with a diploma. We managed to trace our roots to this craftsmen, which is all well documented and saved in the city archives. 

This craft is handed down from father to son for two centuries now. We take a lot of pride in this fact, taking in account the the hard and turbulent history of Bosnia and Herzegovina, changes of the different empires, swapping between the East and West influence. We managed to hang around.  

OUR APPROACH

For us, our approach is a result of a natural business development and improvement. But, not everyone is in our shoes. We take a lot of pride in what we do, and what we make. Our traditional products are what represents us without even saying a single word. Yet, we want to get better, and provide better quality, usable items, coherent to current fashion trends. Somehow we manage to incorporate some modern shapes and traditional good old fashioned craftsmanship skills. Where we don't compromise is quality of build. Our products are hand made, hand cut, hand stitched and finally assembled by the single master craftsman. Our workers take a lot of pride in what they do, often they sign their work in in the places that are visible only if you take the slipper apart, or have a small signature cut in the side, not noticeable for a untrained eye, but consistent mark that its their work. Funny thing is, you would think after spending somewhat of 25 years of making slippers, one would get bored, and "had enough", but you can find our workers visiting our shop, looking through our shop display to figure out did we displayed their pieces, or others. Its just a thing, we all have about the work that we do.

In the end, its important to note that we are trying to keep up with modern technologies, in terms of low cost of production, and higher durability and overall quality of the products, but not for any price. We still maintain our signature feel to the product, and we will not incorporate a newer technology if it doesn't improve the product in that field (overall build quality, or durability, comfort, etc) by more than double. 

We do not mass produce anything. Our policy is strictly limited edition, and handmade. 

OUR PHILOSOPHY

 

In the modern world of mass production, unique items are somehow reserved for the more wealthy people. Due to high cost of manual labor, time needed to make anything one of kind, labels like "genuine leather", "100% handmade" not to mention "Unique" are mostly synonyms for very expensive. Our job is to make this business  live and striving, because it is, a piece of history and cultural heritage of Bosnia and Herzegovina, but also job we love doing and of course we live of it. The other mission is to make unique products widely available, and to spread this opportunity, that YOU, can have a one of a kind pair of slippers or mules, and to be sure, that only you, have that exact pair, in that size, color, model and shape in THE WHOLE WORLD.
