About Our Sumak Kilim Loafers
This unique style has garnered a cult following, and its limited releases are collected by fans all over the world. Our Sumak Kilim shoes are handmade from one-of-a-kind Turkish carpets, which means that no two pairs will ever be alike.*
Sumak (also spelled Soumak, Soumakh, Sumac, and Soumac) kilims have a stronger weave and a more textural hand than other types of kilim carpets. They are known for their intricate designs that incorporate finely detailed symbols, figures, and representations of animals. The crisp and boldly contrasting blues, reds, and whites often featured in Sumak kilims make them a favorite among our community.
- Handwoven Sumak Kilim rug upper in wool and silk fibers.
