WHAT ARE JUTTIS?
Juttis originated with the Mughals in India and were the shoe of choice for the royalty of the age. Juttis during this era of Indian history were bedecked with real jewels and it wouldn’t be uncommon to see a king or queen wearing juttis with emeralds, rubies and pearls, woven together with golden thread. These days you’re less likely to come across those kinds of juttis (imagine the price!) but modern-day juttis are no less beautiful.
Real juttis, like ours, are handcrafted by artisanal experts and are made with genuine leather. Juttis are defined by the ‘m’ shaped front and, in keeping with traditional crafting, juttis are distinct from any other shoe in that they are not shaped for left and right. The jutti, over time, takes the shape of your foot, fitting you like a glove. While soft to the touch at first fitting, the leather also only softens over time, making your juttis truly yours.
Head to our shop to select the perfect pair for you, choosing from prints to ornate embellishments to hand-stitched embroidery and more.
At Bela & Co, our juttis are handmade with love to create wearable art.
One knows when you’re organizing a wedding, there are certain details that slip your mind. For me, it was my wedding day shoe. I loved my Juttis, when I first saw them it immediately reminded me of my ring neck parrot I had a special affinity towards (it became my little tribute to him). My experience with Jutti Bela was nothing short of pleasant. Given the time pressure, they took the time out to assist me in matching my outfit with every option available. Their delivery was timely and everything was handled so professionally for both me and my bridesmaids. Moreover, a special handwritten note congratulating me on my upcoming wedding was a personal touch that every bride endears. Thank you Jutti Bela. Ps. They were so comfortable, I decided to wear them the next day at my home welcoming ceremony.
I have four pairs in my Bela and Co collection and I want more! Every time I wear them, compliments flood in and everyone wants to know where I bought them.
