Mohinders creates handmade shoes with ethical practices and quality results. They are well-designed, long lasting and use respectful sourcing. It resembles a Mexican huarache but is actually a traditional style from India.
One of their favorite ways to embrace slow fashion: buy things that last. Every pair of Mohinders is made with strong full-grain water buffalo leather and a grippy, durable crepe rubber outsole that last for seasons of wear and make re-soling easy.

With each material used to make Mohinders, they do their best to reduce waste and negative environmental impact. A few ways they do this:
∙ Support a primary source of leather made in traditional, non-industrialized tanning methods that use plant-based ingredients and no synthetic chemicals
∙ Lining leather sourced from in a tannery with a Leather Working Group gold rating
∙ Choosing natural dyes for our colorways: iron, myrobalan, Obenauf’s leather oil
∙ Crepe rubber soles: a two-ingredient, plant-based regenerating source of rubber
∙ Organic cotton reusable dust bags
Mohinders are designed to last for years, not just a season. This means:
∙ Crepe rubber soles protect footbed stitches and midsoles
∙ Construction updates allow every pair to be re-soled by a cobbler, extending your shoes’ life
∙ Lining leather + footbed cushion create a custom fit that lasts
SLOW FASHION is defined by the slower process taken to design, source, produce, and sell garments. It's often accompanied by eco-conscious materials, fair trade practices, sourcing and pricing transparency, and is known to challenge the traditional retail model.
FAST FASHION utilizes trend replication, rapid production, and low quality materials in order to bring inexpensive styles to the public. Unfortunately, this results in harmful impacts to the environment, human well-being, and ultimately our wallets.
