Rana did such an amazing job on my bridal shoes! She was easy to work with and listened to my vision. The shoes are fabulous quality and I could not be more thrilled to wear them on my wedding day!

About

KUKLA encourages individuality!

"KUKLA shoes" is created with the idea to offer customized shoes and accessories that reflect your personal story, as an alternative to identical mass-products.

My name is Rana Öztok and I have been designing shoes&accessories for my own brand KUKLA, since 2010. I graduated from Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University, Textile&Fashion Design department.

My story as a shoe designer started back at university; when I designed a small shoe collection for a school project. My project passed the first elimination and one of the models was to be realised, therefore I needed to visit shoe manufacturers, as well as leather shops and supply factories. Fascinated by the colourful atmosphere of leather&shoe bussiness, I started taking lessons from an admirable old shoemaker, and I knew then I wanted to be a part of this world.

When I started my own brand, a friend of mine was about to get married. She asked me to prepare a pair of bridal shoes for her, on which I painted their portraits. These shoes were the center of attention during her wedding and everyone asked me for more handpainted shoes, thus I came up with the idea to offer custom designed shoes for special occasions.

All KUKLA shoes are hand-sewn at our small atelier in İstanbul, they are not mass-products, but made one by one with care. The production stages consist of pretty much the traditional shoe making process; with sewing machines, hand tools and simple machines used to assemble the soles and upper together.

I really enjoy creating a unique pair for everyone, not just for an occasion but also as forever keepsake...
