Description

An ancient form of footwear, Khadau slippers were traditionally worn by saints and priests in India. Today, they are rare collectibles evocative of India’s rich cultural heritage. Completed in wood, Khadaus are essentially made of two parts – a single wooden plank for a base and a carved block fixed atop to provide support to the toes.
This exquisite pair of Khadau slippers, crafted in wood and metal, is from southern India and dates back to the 19th century. Known as acupressure Khadaus, these are designed for the treatment of foot-related medical conditions and have other health benefits, as well. The pressure points – metal nails in this pair of Khadaus – help relieve pain and improve overall health.
