Let us tell you everything about our handcrafted women's shoes. So, to start, what is a jutti?

How is the Jutti Made?

Jutti shoes for ladies are handmade by different artisans of the trade. In the manufacturing process, various steps are carried out sequentially. These are the basic steps to follow to make handcrafted women's shoes:

  1. Design and Molding

The first thing needed is inspiration, the creative idea, and it is from this that the designer will start drawing sketches and bring form to their idea. Then going from 2D to 3D is left.

  1. The Cut

The person in charge of carrying out the cutting is called the cutter. It is here that they use the molds of the model to cut the material that was chosen to make the jutti.

  1. Leather cut

For this process, it uses a special cutting blade (which is also handcrafted), and manually on a cutting table, it will cut piece by piece. It is essential to know how much the leather stretches to understand where and how to place each piece.

Note: Many people use scissors or cutter to cut the leather to make the task a little easier. The correct handling of the cutting blade is complicated at first. Doing it with scissors indeed leaves a sloppy finish!

  1. The Side

The turning process consists of sewing and stitching the different pieces that make up the footwear. To achieve a unique piece, it is all sewn together.

  1. The Assembly 

The assembly process consists of using the pieces already assembled, placing the cut in the last, and starting to join it. The artisan nails a reinforcement template under the bottom end sheet in its sole. He later places the sewn material on top, then puts buttresses on the heel, and taps on the tip to harden and contain these areas.

  1. Flooring

Depending on the material selected as the base of the shoe, the artisan goes through a specific method of cleaning, treating, and then placing the glue for each case. Settle with the hammer and trim the excess sole has been chosen as the base. Finally, glue the block if it requires it.

  1. Deformed 

Here the deformer sands the base of the sole and then gives it a patina of the desired color.

  1. The Embellishment

This is the final stage of process for handcrafted women's shoes.  The hand-paint motifs and designs are applied on the juttis with specific inks to unify the colors with the lining, nail studs, threads, glue the sight insole, iron the leather, apply creams to the leather to nourish and beautify it, and polish it to give it shine.

Behind every pair of artisan shoes, there is quite a bit of work involved. At Mujro, you will see many designs, from classic to extravagant. Shop for your juttis online.
