The Jutti, often known as Punjabi Jutti is a type of footwear common in North India and neighboring regions. They are traditionally made up of leather and with extensive embroidery and are full hand sewn and hand done. In olden days the embroidery was done in real gold and silver thread as inspired by Indian royalty over 400 years ago, but now with the changing times metallic wires and other embroidery material is used. Also to make it more cost effective, rubber soles are used for cutting down on the cost. They also do not have left or right distinction, and over the time take the shape of the foot. They are done for both men and women and have different variations of design nowadays. They are sometimes known as Mojaris too. Here are few tips as how to style them perfectly for yourself.
