About Our Carpet Loafers
We are thrilled to introduce the newest addition to our Kilim Shoe Line: Oriental Carpet Loafers. We've shaved down the pile of luxurious, hand-knotted Anatolian carpets to make them suitable for shoes, resulting in a velvety texture and fine, traditional designs. All of our Carpet Shoes are handmade from vintage, hand-sourced Turkish carpets, which means that no two pairs will ever be alike.*
Our Carpet Loafers are inspired by the classic design of a men’s smoking shoe, traditionally meant to be worn with tuxedos. Much like our best-selling Kilim Shoes, this style looks handsome with a tux, but will go just as well with jeans, khakis, and even your favorite swim trunks!
- Hand-knotted Oriental carpet upper in wool.
- Leather sole with 3/4 inch heel.
- Handmade in Turkey in a small, family-owned workshop.
Size & Fit
We've found the carpet textile to run a little large, so we recommend ordering a full size down from your usual US size. The shoes should feel snug when you first wear them because they will mold to the shape of your foot, much like a fine leather shoe. Learn more about the fit of our shoes here.
If it's your first time wearing Artemis, we always encourage ordering two pairs of shoes in different sizes in order to ensure that you receive a perfect fit! We are happy to offer easy and free return shipping if you order two sizes and return one pair.
*The Carpet Loafers pictured are the actual pair that you will receive.
