Sandals, specially developed under the label "Guru for Calypso" hit boutiques in June for Spring/Summer 2010, and are now available in 27 stores internationally, including the Tribecca and Meat-Packing locations here in New York City.
Guru sandals are sourced from craftsmen who support a dying cottage industry art, based within Lahore and its surrounding villages. The source is
also a pioneer in terms of design, technology and standard, producing the most beautifully-worked, durable, quality products available in Pakistan, and in the world today. Design innovation is drawn regionally from across Pakistan, and surrounding cultural influences. All sandals are made of natural, premium quality cowhide. The shoes are naturally processed, no chemicals are involved in their manufacture. No child labor is used in the manufacture of these shoes. The threadwork, or tankas, are stitched by hand by women or old men from their homes. Often, they are the sole breadwinners for their families. All Guru sandals have reinforced rubber soles for added comfort and durability.
