Founders of the Turkish ZEGA brand, Zeynep and Gaye aim to revive the national Ottoman shoe and traditional craftsmanship with their take on the classic Babouche slipper.
A brand passionate about bringing a piece of Ottoman charm and tradition into the 21st century, “hand crafted out of the finest leather, and embellished with a constellation of jewels and colours, they’re the perfect flat shoe to add a little magic to your outfit.” Customarily created leather, the babouche is an individual style statement, moulding itself to the wearer’s foot over time so that it truly belongs to no one else.
The art and craftsmanship required to design and produce these slippers is an honoured tradition. The ZEGA babouche imbues these classic slippers with “the spirits of wanderlust and effortless glamour”
