Bootyfull ‘Inca Boots’ are all one-offs. Handmade and high quality they definitely have WOW factor! Made with gorgeous, real suede and featuring beautiful, handwoven, traditional wool blanket inlays from the high altitude Andes mountains of Peru, the former capital of the Incan Empire.
They really are stunning and the photos hardly do them justice! Every pair is a work of art.
The traditional designs of the blankets are often dreamed by the women of the high Andes and passed on from generation to generation. The motifs and patterns represent the elements, aspects of the natural world such as flowers, stars and animals and everyday life in the Andes.
Bootyfull works with and supports an extended family of incredibly talented, indigineous artisans in the city of Cusco, Peru. We are honoured to have the opportunity to support such lovely people in a fair trade collaboration. The fabric is sourced direct from the women weavers which helps to support the continuation of their time honoured, traditional craft. Many still use traditional dyes made from plants, flowers, insects and earth.
