The history of the traditional style of the Babouche is known to date many centuries back. The style originally hailed from the Middle East and was worn by Monarchs. In the 17th century, French courtiers gained a liking for the style and popularized them into the early fashion scene. The shoe has been redesigned to adapt to current trends throughout time. Now, Babouches are considered the national shoe of Morocco. Moroccan designer Rhita Sebti provides her own iteration on her country’s iconic shoe while incorporating her experiences in Rome. Her designs feature the classic flat, slipper-like shape with a contemporary and luxurious twist. Every shoe is a 100% Moroccan produced item. Whether traditional, modern, or a mix of the aesthetics is preferred, shop chic babouches here.
