La Babouche

Babouches, flat leather slippers with a pointed toe, are ubiquitous in Tunisian households, and recently the staple slip-on has jumped onto Western runways courtesy of collections by Celine, Acne Studios and Opening Ceremony. Inspired by ancestral fashions, Tunis-based La Babouche (formerly Baboucheschacha) was founded in 2013 and designs polished babouches that stay true to their sartorial roots while incorporating effortlessly into modern wardrobes.
