Kolhapuri chappals are versatile and can be worn with most outfits, but it can be confusing how exactly to style it with different look. 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.
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.
