Do you have a special carpet, Kilim, or even a piece of upholstery that you think would create beautiful shoes? Do you see a textile on our site that you love, but wish we made in a different shape or style? We can accommodate most requests now with our custom ordering option. Please note that we cannot recreate a pair of our one of a kind Kilim shoes that has sold out, or is only available in a different size.
Here are some examples of custom projects we have worked on in the past.
- We have created a completely one of a kind pair of shoes from a friends chair upholstery that her grandmother had woven by hand. It had several stains on it so she wanted to reupholster the chair, but not lose the beautiful parts of her grandmothers work. We created a completely custom pair of smoking shoes and a small handbag for her.
- Another customer and friend of ours loves our leopard velvet material, but wanted to get them in our Kilim Slide shape.
- We have taken a special family heirloom carpet, and made a collection of shoes, Weekender bags, and small accessories as a completely special and commemorative Christmas gift for an entire family.
The cost to design your own shoes is a flat $348. This does not include extra shipping costs if we need to send a textile to our workshop to Turkey.

Above photos show an example of a pair of custom shoes that we made for a client. We used old chair upholstery that her grandmother had handmade (it had actually originally covered the chair in the photos!). There were a few small stains, so we just cut around them, and created this gorgeous pair of shoes, and used the extra textile to make a cross body bag!
