About Our Clementine Velvet Loafers
We're bringing back another favorite from the early days of Artemis Design Co.--our best-selling loafer shape in luxe hand-loomed velvet. This snazzy style is a perfect choice for holiday gatherings, but we really love how it elevates everyday outfits.
- Upper in 100% silk velvet, hand-loomed by a women's collective in Uzbekistan.
- Leather sole with 3/4 inch heel.
- Handmade in Istanbul in a small, family-owned workshop, by cobblers whose families have practiced the craft for generations.
Avoid rain or snow as much as possible. If your shoes do become a little bit wet, that’s ok; just let them dry out completely and continue wearing as usual. They can be freshened up by brushing lightly with a soft clothing brush.
If you plan on using your velvet shoes for daily walks or throughout city streets, you may extend the life of the soles by asking your local cobbler to attach a rubber sole to them.
