Kolhapuri Chappal - FAQ

What are Kolhapuri Chappals made of?

Kolhapuri Chappals are made out of pure leather (sourced from buffalo hide) and are tanned using vegetable extracts. The sturdy leather and tight-knit design help the footwear last long across multiple terrains. These ethnic chappals (locally referred to as Paytaan) boast of a long history, having been in existence since the 13th century. Due to the influence of modern fashion trends, they now come in different heel heights, such as flats, platforms and wedges. 

Are Kolhapuri Chappals comfortable to wear?

Unlike their earlier designs, the recent versions of kolhapuri chappals online are much lighter to wear, with a comfortable, cushioning design. Also, while there are intricately designed options, minimalism is the trend in Kolhapuri slippers where longevity and comfort are the focus.

How do you take care of Kolhapuri Chappals?

Here are some steps that you should consider for the upkeep of your Kolhapuris:

  • When not in use, place the Kolhapuri slippers in a clean and dry storage area. 
  • Avoid keeping chappals in a closed space for a long time. Doing so would result in the appearance of a fungus-like substance on the slippers. 
  • To remove the fungus, sun-dry the chappals for an hour or more. Once done, wipe the fungus off with a dry cloth. During the drying process, the chappal would tan a bit. However, there is nothing to worry about as the tanning is proof of the presence of genuine leather with no long term damage. 
  • Polish once or twice a week to maintain the shine of the slippers. 
Can Kolhapuri Chappals be used in the rainy season?

It is recommended to not use them in the rainy season as the footwear could trap moisture within, damaging it in the long term. In case the slippers do come in contact with rains or any kind of moisture, use a dryer to dry them out.
