Women's Babouche Slipper 8-5
Our Babouche Slipper is handmade in our factory in Marrakech using repurposed bourcherouite rugs. Boucherouite rugs are made by members of the Berber tribe from the Ourika Valley in the High Atlas mountains. Ourika boucherouite rugs are are hand woven for use in the home using undyed organic wool with Berber motifs.
The Moroccan babouche slipper derives from the Arabic 'babush' or Persian 'papush'. The iconic open-back sandal design is said to reflect the fact that its wearers (often monarchs and 17th century French courtiers) lived a luxurious lifestyle .
