Paradise for shoe lovers, Banjaaran is an online brand based out of Delhi, selling quirky and handcrafted artistic footwear. Banjaaran translates an international aesthetic using local material and crafts – taking inspiration from indigenous Indian handicrafts as well as tribes and sub cultures from around the world. By using techniques such as block printing, embroidery, and batik dyeing on fabric and leather, and by incorporating bold and traditional colours, each shoe is made to look badass, yet desi.
Hands down, the basic idea of promoting Indian handicrafts and enabling people to notice its richness and boldness is what we love most. We adore their women's Gaze Mules that are evil-eye inspired and their Ikat Brogues that are the perfect balance between desi and international. The unique and funky prints, along with a bright pop of colour will make heads turn and make your feet look fantastic. For men, there's a lot of sneakers, mules and brogues to pick from but we definitely have our eye on the Ignis Sneaker.
