Kaalash: The Heritage & Resolve
A Culture Of Quality
From the mountains of Hindu Kush, a voice beckons. A culture of exotic wonder strives to emerge. Wearing an armor of pride, they bask in the glory of a rich history; a 2400 year old footprint.
Descending from the armies of Alexander the Great, they’ve expertly woven their beautiful history,forever etching their signature on the soles of extraordinary personas. Meet the Kaalash…
Once a powerful tribe, these people are the native inhabitants of 3 beautiful valleys of the Chitral Region, namely, Rumbur, Brumbret and Birir, in Pakistan. Retaining their age old beliefs and distinct practices, they are the crown jewels of a heritage that is increasingly under threat. Once a thriving populace, now only 5000 remains. But they are resilient and they never compromise over two things; their identity and effort. They are symbols.
When we first came across the Kaalash, we were simply blown away by their beauty, exotic nature, a big heart & mastery over leather.

Kaalash – (PROCESS)
A Journey Of Leather – From The Hindu Kush To Your Sole
Step 1: The Leather
The tribe needs food, but they also need clothing and footwear, so they find a way. They carve leather manually. They’ve been doing that for the past 2400 years. They are masters. They have various types of the finest leathers, an assortment of textures & colors. They are adept at tailoring shoes for different feet and sizes. There is something for everyone.
Step 2: From Designs To Soles – Shoe Mold Testing
In conjunction with the Kaalash people, each & every shoe mold & pattern passes through the articulate eyes of our experts. They undergo various testing & simulations to ensure the comfort & durability of the design, ultimately keeping your feet in mind. Once satisfied with the design, many different molds along with various sizes are passed on to the shoe connoisseurs.
Step 3: Let The Dance Of Hands Begin
Handmade crafts require discipline. They breed dedication and patience and they require attention to detail. A handmade object has to pass the test of the heart. The highly skilled Kaalasha craftsmen utilize traditional tools and techniques to craft the perfect blend of comfort, custom, beauty in their handmade shoes. From each design to every sole, age-old techniques come into play. The leather is shaped into an aspired design; each fabric is carefully sewn into the sole. Every aspect is carefully choreographed, every task is carefully scrutinized. All technology is avoided. This is handmade in its most organic form.
Step 4: Placing Ourselves In Your Shoes
After the stitching is complete, the handcrafted pair goes into testing again. This is done for it to pass our stringent quality & comfort tests. We analyze the shoe from your perspective. It has to be magnificent otherwise, it will be shelved.
Step 5: Stepping Into Our Inventory
After careful completion of several shoe projects, a batch is formed. This contains various shoe collections along with a plethora of sizes. It is then picked up by our logistics team from the beautiful Kaalash Valleys and shipped to our inventory. When a shoe makes it to our inventory, it carries the dedication of a Kaalasha with it. When it’s sold, a Kaalasha’s welfare rises with it.
