Jutti is a traditional Indian footwear popular in North India, especially in Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan.

It has different variations which are known as kussa or mojri. These are handmade by skilled artisans in remote corners of India. They have no left or right foot, and over time take the shape of the feet. They have a flat sole, and are similar in design for both women and men, except for men they have a sharp extended tip, curved upwards, and some women juttis have no back part, near the ankle.

They are usually made of fine leather, traditionally tanned leather. The uppers are made of leather from goat skin, inside lining is sheep skin, insole made of a cotton cushion and the sole is made of buffalo skin.

The upper portion is stitched to the sole by a cotton thread, which entangles with the leather fibers for great strength & makes it strong and comfortable.

Designs are inspired from the Mughal era with vibrant colours, rich golden threads, and colorful beads to enhance the motifs, and add a royal touch and are made in different shades of leather.

This skill has been handed over generations and has evolved through years.

These juttis were worn by wealthy Zamindars, Chaudharys, Nawabs, Jagirdars, and Maharajas and Maharanis of India.

Today these are often worn with traditional Indian clothes especially on occasions like weddings.
