It was several years ago that this article about Janet Chisholm was first published in the New York Times Style section, but I was delighted to come across her luxury accessories company Hanimefendi more recently.
Made by hand from antique silk ikats as well as modern woven fabrics, the slippers are designed and manufactured in a workshop behind the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul.
Near and dear to our hearts are anyone with the passion for reviving traditional craft with such beautiful taste and style.
Slippers fit for today's princess.
