A Punjabi jutti is a flat-soled footwear, designed with exquisite embroidery and perfect craftsmanship. North India, especially Amritsar and Patiala are the two main cities in India which cater to the growing demand of juttis. The Juttis have no left and right distinction and take the shape of the foot overtime. Juttis have always remained a part of ceremonial attire and used to be embroidered with silver and golden threads in olden days. The simple and sober ones are still used by many people for daily use. Juttis are not only comfortable but look stylish too!
Punjabi Juttis have a social significance as well. In olden days, during festivals, Punjabi juttis were fitted into the feet of cows, which was considered to be auspicious. Since then, the juttis have always been in vogue! Punjabi Juttis are usually made out of leather and embroidered delicately. These ethnic footwear were worn fondly by the erstwhile Maharajas, Maharanis (especially in Punjab), zamindars (land lords) and by the rich and famous. They are thus a status symbol also. The subtle the Punjabi jutti, the costlier it gets!
In other parts of India, juttis are known by the colloquial names. Like in Rajasthan, juttis are known as mojari and khussa in other northern parts. Though there maybe a little variation. In Rajasthan, motifs are used with different colored threads to give a royal look to the mojris. No doubt these have become quite popular in the West too! The best thing about the Punjabi juttis is that they are available for both men and women.
Punjabi Juttis can be teemed with both formal and semi-formal dresses. In a wedding, the bridegroom mostly wears juttis and this gives a vintage look to the attire. Girls wear them with formal salwar kameezes, sarees and even with jeans, short tops, kurtis, etc. Apart from giving a perfect finish to the feet, juttis are also light-weight, comfortable and easy to carry. People are crazy about Lahori, Peshawari and Kassori juttis, made primarily in Pakistan with the Pakistani touch.
