The Story: Traditionally, the Mochi community of Rajasthan, who have now been settled in Punjab for several generations, made horse saddles and reigns. They used to make and send reigns and footwears made of leather to Lahore. The juttis were made in a wide area, from Udaipur to Hindumal Kot in Rajasthan but after 1947, most of them settled in Punjab. Bhupendra Singh, a king patronised this tradition in Punjab and this footwear craft has been practiced in Patiala for the last 300 years by Raijer Mochis, who migrated from Sikal and Shikawat in Rajasthan.

Over centuries, a beautiful variety of footwear has been created in India, among these the Jutti is one of the styles to evolve and grow with heavy embellishments, different motifs and decorations. The process of creating Juttis begins at a tannery where raw leather hides are processed using vegetable tanning process. A substance called tannin, which is extracted from the bark of Babool or Kikkar trees, is used. It is due to this tanning process, that an animal hide becomes strong, flexible, water resistant and consequently, wearable. For coloring, yellow-sarfoola and green-arsi gulabi powdered pigments are thouroghly mixed to make a thin solution of different shades of red and applied to the pieces of leather with a brush by hand. The tanned leather is then cut into different pieces that eventually are hand-stitched to form a shoe or jutti.

The upper part of the shoe called Panna, is made of one piece of leather or a robust fabric, and is then heavily embellished or embroidered with metal nails, shells, sequins, beads or bells. Further, the bonding or hand-stitching of the upper part and rear of the Jutti called Adda to the sole is done using natural or eco-friendly cotton threads that binds the leather pieces strongly to each other. For coloring, sarfoola (yellow) and arsi gulabi (green) powderedpigments are mixed in water to make a thin solution of different shades of red and applied to the pieces of leather using a local shaving brush. Punjabi Juttis are usually made of fine leather and are delicately hand-embroidered with threads, sequins or beads. Juttis are slip-on in style and are characterized by rising high to the Achilles' tendon in the back and covering the toes with a round or M-shaped heavily-embroidered upper shoe and leaving the top of the foot nearly bare. In the town of Muktsar, which is an ancient originating point of Punjabi jutti, the basic check designs are traced and embroidered on Rexene stencils, which are then pasted on top of the leather Jutti. This method ensures faster completion, to meet the high demand these juttis have.
