    MOCHI derives from the Sanskrit mochika, meaning a "cobbler"; traditionally, the Mochi was the cobbler and shoemaker in India.

     

    JUTTIS are a kind of footwear traditional in Rajasthan made from locally cured leather. They are very well known for the quality of workmanship and the variety and richness of design. They are entirely handcrafted and are measured with the fingers! Men work the leather and women use theirs embroidery skills to decorate the upper portion of the Jutti.

    There is no difference between the right and the left foot once the Juttis takes very easily the shape of the wearer's foot.
