What is the story behind your handmade Moroccan leather sandals?
My name is belaid My mother and my father is Berber. I find my inspiration in these cultures and my different interactions with the rural and urban worlds. This passion for making sandals comes from my grandparents, who had that profession themselves. While I was learning, I started making Berber handmade sandals. Then, I started doing moderne handmade Moroccan sandals, more rural and urban. Those two models have a few differences: Berber handmade sandals have round or square edges, while Arab modern babouches have sharp edges. Depending on the region, modern sandals have different shapes and are decorated with different designs. They’re mainly made in goat or sheep leather.
Which techniques do you use?
I mainly use the Marrakech traditional techniques such as tanning, to prefer henna over chemical dyes. I also clean the leather from its fur pieces, shaping and sizing of the moderne slipper with a traditional machine.
What are your favorite materials?
Goat or sheep leather, nylon thread doubled with silk thread for a perfect adherence, and then another silk thread, the only one showing, cardboard and solid sole.
Where do you find your inspiration?
My inspiration comes from my experience in Tafraout and Taroudant, the historical capital of handmade Moroccan leather sandals. My father was a huge inspiration as well, he only ever made Berber babouches. I took inspiration from his designs and creations, added my new designs, and modernized his old models to fit my customers taste.
