START YOUR DAY WITH A TOUCH OF CHRISTMAS SPARKLE
Kokina is an old Istanbul tradition to celebrate the arrival of Christmas and the winter. To make kokina, you put together two plants that grow in the wild in Istanbul: Knee Holly and Anatolian Sarsaparilla. The making and selling of kokina is a tradition passed down from the Rum (Roman from the East Roman Empire, in other words, the Byzantium) who are the Turkish Greeks who made up a large number of the inhabitants of Constantinople, later Istanbul. It is said that the name kokina comes from kokkino, the Greek word for red.

SIZE & FIT
AnatolianCraft shoes run true to size and are available in medium width only.
For slippers, we recommend ordering your true size for very narrow feet and a size up for wider feet. For mules, we recommend ordering your true size. If you usually wear in-between shoe sizes, we recommend going with half a size up. For example, if you usually wear 36.5, you should go for size 37.

Our shoes and accessories are unique, delicate, and precious. Please follow our recommendations to make sure to preserve their beauty and longevity.
The soles, insoles, and lining of our slippers and mules are made of genuine leather. The embroidered surfaces of our shoes and bags are made of authentic Kutnu fabric or velvet. Kutnu is a natural fabric blend of cotton in the warp and pure silk in the weft. All of our materials are locally and ethically sourced for the finest quality.
Because of their handmade and hand-embroidered nature, items may have variations or slight imperfections. With no two items fully identical, each product becomes a one-of-a-kind piece.
AnatolianCraft shoes are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use in warm, dry weather since their soles are made of 100% genuine leather. However, we do NOT recommend wearing them outside in the rain or snow since the mud, damp or water can damage them. If any part gets dirty, we recommend wiping and spot-cleaning them with a soft cloth dampened with water. Do not bleach. Avoid contact with any substance containing oil or alcohol, and do not use any abrasive cleaning products.
When not in use, please keep your products in their original care bag and box to avoid moths. You can sprinkle some dried rosemary on the bottom of the cardboard box as a moth deterrent.
Our artisans start making your shoes or accessories as soon as your order is received. Orders require 10 working days of production time and dispatched within one (1) day after the production has finished. Read more about our process here.
We ship worldwide with DHL. Shipping costs may vary depending upon the rates offered by DHL for each country which will be calculated automatically at checkout.
By the way, the shipping is on us if you spend over 1,000 Euros (around $1200). You are still responsible for any customs duties incurred.
The customer is responsible for any duties, taxes and all expenses required by the country of destination at the customs. To find out whether you have to pay customs duties upon the arrival of your shipment, please refer to your local customs office (or their website) for more information. Most countries allow up to a certain value of goods into the country without requiring additional duties or taxes. Unfortunately, we have no control over how your country determines customs duties, and any collection of duties goes to your government—not to AnatolianCraft.
