India is described by many as a kaleidscope, a melting pot of culture and colours. The most seamless, yet consistent of all civilisations in the world, it has withstood and adopted influences and ideas with a warm smile and made a version that is its own.
This idea of India is what motivated me to venture into reviving a fading traditional art and transforming it into a design statement for the feet. Kolhapuris have been around for the longest time in history and heralded as a fashion accessory, though somewhere took a beating with footwear coming with international sensibilities.
This gave birth to the journey of breaking the barriers of conservative Kolhapuris which were normally made in ‘flats’ or with a ‘one inch box heel’ and moving it to high street fashion with global influences that cater to the ever evolving mindstate.
My desire is to always reflect the India of today, which is a perfect amalgamation of contemporary trends and deeply etched traditions. Inspirations can come from anywhere to a curious mind, and my designs are an interpretation of life around us.
Handcrafted and maintaining the pristine art of making Kolhapuris, we have sourced skilled craftsmen from different parts of India, who have inherited and mastered this ancient technique passed down from their forefathers.
This eclectic mix of talent from different parts of India has built a heady concoction of fascinating designs and ideas that have got our customers excited over the years with our bespoke offering gives customers an individualistic mohar.
So welcome to Aprajita Toor, the only best thing after bare feet
