These beautiful pair of hammam slippers are all hand-made with inlaid mother of pearl in the shop of a master specialized in the crafts of metal and woodwork. The slippers were ubiquitous in the era in hammams and are quite common.

The inlaying of mother of pearl, an exquisite decorative technique, goes back to the Sumerians, and has been taken over and brought to perfection by the Ottomans. Motifs include geometrical shapes, flowers, leaves and other nature inspired elements.
