The creative force behind Les Trois Chameaux is Souheil Fitouri, a fifth-generation balgha maker who learned to craft the classic Tunisian slipper from his father, master balgha maker of the Tunis medina. Today, Les Trois Chameaux preserves Tunisia’s sartorial heritage and adds a dash of inspiration, working with young artisans and designers to adapt the traditional footwear to contemporary fashion and export it beyond the Mediterranean to Europe and the U.S.
