Description

In Himachal, knit slippers known as mojari are a must for keeping feet warm around the home. Extra mojari are even kept on hand to give to guests. These mojari are handmade by members of Kullvi Whims women’s self-help group from 100% wool. After hand spinning yarn at home, the women gather natural dye materials from the orchards, fields, and jungles surrounding their villages. They work together to dye the yarns, and then knit following their own whims to combine colors and motifs. The result is a unique accessory that embodies the rugged landscape and warm hospitality of Himachal.

Care Instructions: Wash by hand in cool water with a mild soap (we recommend Kandvari Natural Laundry Detergent). Lay flat to dry in a shady spot (not in direct sunlight).
