About Thaqafah

Sales 427
On Etsy since 2015

Thaqafah means culture and our handmade shoes reflect world culture......

Thaqafah began with our travels around the globe, noticing the colorful asthetics of different cultures that we've seen and experienced. And with our genuine love for shoes, along with being in the footwear business for about 8 years, we decided to launch our very own shoes that would be fashionable, sustainable, traditional, yet modern.

Our shoes will not only last for years to come, but the wearer will be actually wearing culture and history while being fashionable all the same. Our shoe line gives life to age old craft and gives jobs to those artisan/craftsmen who love to do their job.....by making shoes.

Currently we are working with experienced cobblers from Turkey, India, and Pakistan to produce our designs, and collaborate on marrying the old to the new, the east to the west in complete harmony.

Join us on our journey, and stay tuned for all to come from Thaqafah.
