Çaplait's artisan, boho sandals

Inspired by traditional Pakistani sandals, footwear brand Çaplait creates luxury, boho-inspired and hand-crafted styles – a modern take on a heritage style.

Founded in Yorkshire in 2017 by Usman Manzoor, the brand’s core style is inspired by the Peshwari chappal sandal, which is characterised by squared toes, a crossover strap and buckle fastening.

Traditionally a menswear style, Çaplait (pronounced “Saplay”) instead creates womenswear versions featuring delicate embroidery. Highlights from the collection include a white canvas option with blue floral embroidery and a pair of black sandals with geometric embroidery.

The shoes are designed in the UK and created by a team of local artisans in Pakistan. Through its production, the brand aims to support local communities and skills, and also guarantees ethical working conditions and fair pay for employees.
