About Our Sumak Kilim Slippers
This style was created due to popular request from Artemis fans and team members alike. Much like a classic mule, the Sumak Kilim Slipper is easy to wear with just about any outfit.
Sumak is a particular type of Kilim Carpet in which brightly colored wool fibers are woven over a cream silk base, producing the sharp geometrics and abstract animals Sumaks are known for. Because of its dual-layer nature, this textile tends to be a tougher break-in than Kilim or Oriental carpets.
All of our Kilim shoes are handmade from vintage, hand-sourced Turkish carpets, which means that no two pairs of our Kilim shoes will ever be alike*.
- Handwoven Sumak Kilim carpet upper--typically a mixture of wool and silk fibers.
- Leather sole with 3/4 inch heel.
- Handmade in Turkey in a small, family-owned workshop.
Size & Fit
The Sumak Kilim Slipper runs a little bit small, so if you usually wear a US 8.5, order a size 39, and so on. This style fits all widths, and will mold to the wearer's foot like all of our Kilim shoes. Learn more about the fit of our shoes here.
