"Artemis is so in line with all of the things that I find interesting about design, and the things we choose to live with and wear. Time worn, and drawing on a rich history – the shoes are all hand-made using genuine Turkish carpets!"

Love Letters

They are the absolute comfiest flats (referring to the Women's Kilim Loafers) I have ever found, and some of my comfiest shoes overall. I wear them all around the city, as well as on international trips with lots of walking. They are my ‘go to’ for just about any occasion.

Dear Milicent, Your collection is unique and GORGEOUS!

Aya Kanai, Fashion Director of Hearst Magazines

I love everything about my flying carpet shoes - how they look and feel, how they make any outfit look special, that they are made from repurposed Turkish rugs, how well made they are and that the company is woman owned and employs women around the world to make the shoes.  They are truly magical!

My mom bought me a pair of Artemis Kilim Loafers when I graduated and I fell in love with the style and company. I’m so proud and excited to purchase another beautifully unique pair of shoes from Artemis to walk in my grad school graduation ceremony. Thank you,
Artemis, for being part of my journey.

I just received my first pair of shoes and just have to say how pleased I am! Not only are the shoes adorable, but they’re comfortable and came with the nicest surprise goodies. So glad I discovered not only an amazing brand of shoe but one that’s paired with an unparalleled customer service model. You’ve got a customer in me for life.

Rebecca Shay

Love your shoes! You’ve made a fan out of me - not only because of the quality of your product but stellar customer service (thanks to McNeill!) and gorgeous packaging, I’m sold.
