About Our Kilim Fringe Slides
Our Kilim Fringe Slides are made from the fringed edge of Turkish Sumak carpets. Because this is only a small part of the carpet, we can only create two pairs of Kilim Fringe Slides per carpet, making them very rare and extra-special.
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 Kilim carpet upper--typically wool, or a wool & silk blend.
- Leather sole with 1 1/4 inch heel.
- Handmade in Turkey in a small, family-owned workshop.
Size & Fit
The Kilim Fringe Slide 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.

The Difference between our Women’s Styles
Our Kilim Loafer might be considered the “classic” Artemis shoe. The shape of our Kilim Loafer fits narrow or medium-width feet best, but they will stretch over time to accommodate most widths. Runs true to size.
Inspired by menswear, our classic Smoking Shoe for women features a high vamp and a slightly wider width. If your feet are of medium-width or on the wider side, you may find that the Kilim Smoking Shoe provides the best fit.
A backless version of our Smoking Shoe, this style is evocative of classic menswear, featuring a high vamp and a slightly wider width. This style runs a half-size smaller than our closed-back styles, so if you wear a half size, order the next size up (example, a 38.5 should take a 39).
Inspired by the ease of a classic clog, but with a more feminine shape and a sleeker profile. The heel of this style is twice as high as our other styles, giving the wearer a flattering little lift. This style runs a half-size smaller than our closed-back styles, so if you wear a half size, order the next size up (example, a 38.5 should take a 39).
The Difference between our Men’s Styles
Our Men’s Kilim Loafers are inspired by classical formalwear. In particular, the velvet slippers sometimes known as “Prince Albert Slippers” that men wore with smoking jackets in their studies while partaking in after-dinner cigars. We recommend that gentlemen size down in this style to ensure a snug fit.
A backless version of our Men’s Kilim Loafer. If you enjoy the look of our Kilim Loafer but want to have something a bit more casual, the Kilim Slipper is an excellent choice. This style runs small, so we recommend ordering the European equivalent of your US size, or going one size larger than your Men’s Kilim Loafer size.
