Kolhapuri Chappal

 

Kolhapuri chappals are Indian hand-crafted leather slippers that are locally tanned using vegetable dyes. Kolhapuri Chappals or Kolhapuris as they are commonly referred to are a style of open-toed, T-strap sandal which originated from Kolhapur, a southern District in the state of Maharashtra.

According to historic records, Kolhapuris were first worn as early as the 13th century. Previously known as Kapashi, Paytaan, Kachkadi, Bakkalnali, and Pukari, the name indicated the village where they were made. Official government documents state that in the late 1920s the Saudagar family developed an indigenous design of chappal, which was thinner than the original and had two side flaps, which gave it the name "Kanwali" or a chappal with ears.
