AnatolianCraft shoes run true to size and are available in medium width only.
For slippers, we recommend ordering your true size for very narrow feet and a size up for normal/ wider feet. For example, if you usually wear 36.5, you should go for size 37.

Available sizes are European 36-42

*Please specify your desired size during checkout in the Additional Notes box.


All of our products are hand-crafted and hand-embroidered in Istanbul, Turkey. Some of our artisans live and work in Anatolia, where a rich tradition of craftsmanship has existed for centuries. We custom-make our products after we receive the order. Each shoe is made completely by hand using decade-old techniques, patterns, and equipment. Thus, we need 3 to 10 working days to make each item, depending on the complexity of the design.


Our shoes and accessories are unique, delicate, and precious. Please follow our recommendations to make sure to preserve their beauty and longevity.

The soles, insoles, and lining of our slippers and mules are made of genuine leather. The embroidered surfaces of our shoes and bags are made of authentic Kutnu fabric or velvet. Kutnu is a natural fabric blend of cotton in the warp and pure silk in the weft. All of our materials are locally and ethically sourced for the finest quality. Because of their handmade and hand-embroidered nature, items may have variations or slight imperfections. With no two items fully identical, each product becomes a one-of-a-kind piece.

AnatolianCraft shoes are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use in warm, dry weather since their soles are made of 100% genuine leather. However, we do NOT recommend wearing them outside in the rain or snow since the mud, damp or water can damage them. If any part gets dirty, we recommend wiping and spot-cleaning them with a soft cloth dampened with water. Do not bleach. Avoid contact with any substance containing oil or alcohol, and do not use any abrasive cleaning products.

When not in use, please keep your products in their original care bag and box to avoid moths. You can sprinkle some dried rosemary on the bottom of the cardboard box as a moth deterrent.

Shipping and Returns Policy

Free worldwide shipping with DHL Express (1-3 working days)

Return Policy

We do not accepts returns on international sales. All international sales are final. Our artisans start making your shoes as soon as your order is placed. Thus, all international sales are final due to the made-to-order nature of our handmade products. If you purchased Anatolian Craft products from a retailer, please contact that retailer directly for information on their return policy.


Due to the made-to-order nature of our products, all orders are non-refundable including all cancellations once the production begins.


The customer is responsible for any duties, taxes, and all expenses required by the country of destination at the customs. To find out whether you have to pay customs duties upon the arrival of your shipment, please refer to your local customs office (or their website) for more information. Most countries allow up to a certain value of goods into the country without requiring additional duties or taxes. Unfortunately, we have no control over how your country determines customs duties, and any collection of duties goes to your government—not to AnatolianCraft.

Exchanges (if applicable)

We take extreme care in ensuring our products are of the highest quality. Because of their handmade and hand-embroidered nature, items may have variations or slight imperfections. With no two items fully identical, each product becomes a one-of-a-kind piece.

However, if for any reason you find a fault with one of our items, you will be entitled to an exchange. If that is the case, please first send us an email at and tell us about the situation. Please also include a clear photo that shows the problem. We replace items only if they are defective or damaged. Once you receive our email confirming an exchange, you must return the products to us within seven 7 days.

The returned products must be unworn, unaltered, and in their original packaging with the labels intact. We are unable to accept shoes with dirty marks or damaged soles. Items must be returned in the original box which must be in the original condition. AnatolianCraft reserves the right to refuse the return for exchange if these conditions are not adhered to. If your exchange request is accepted, we will ship your new product once we receive the item you have returned.
