Pasha makes wearable jewelry as simple as slipping on your shoes.
After all, the glittering collection is fittingly tagged “Jewelry for Your Feet.”
Each pair of sandals created by the international company is adorned with Mediterranean-inspired jewels, including rhinestones from the Czech Republic, and mother-of-pearl from Indonesia’s Java Sea. The internationally sourced shells and stones in warm shades, cool tones and neutrals bring a Boho chic feel to footwear for all seasons.
The sandals are designed by professional gemologists and handcrafted by a team of skilled artisans in Southeast Asia, a process that takes eight to 12 hours. Pasha’s commitment to craftsmanship is certainly not taken lightly. Each stone, no matter the size, is meticulously sewn, one by one, onto the leather using invisible thread.
The shoes also mirror the colorful background of the company’s founder and design director, Namrata Mirpuri. The Indian native was raised in Peru, with Spanish as her first language. After marrying at a young age, she returned to Asia and became a certified gemologist, specializing in diamonds and, in 2011, opened her own factory. Her creations — which include hair jewelry — are inspired by her travels to beaches and forests, towns and cities around the world. And though she appreciates the eclectic styles of different countries, she thought that women’s footwear that could use a little pep in its step.
“Every woman is a model and should be graciously adorned from top to bottom,” Mirpuri has said.
With more than 800 styles to date, Pasha offers glitzy footwear for all occasions, both elaborate and casual, in wedges, heels and sandals. And the brand is in constant pursuit of new, glamorous designs to offset the most fabulous of feet.
“We constantly come up with new styles that are in touch with the latest fashion trends, so you will never be bored and will always be yearning for more,” Mirpuri has said.
Pasha sandals, starting at $175, come with a collapsible, golden gift box with metal corners and handles and an organza shoe bag for safekeeping.
