Shoes manufacturing in Nepal

Nepal's shoemaking history may be traced back to traditional workmanship and local materials. In the past, leather, wool, and plant fibres that were easily accessible locally were used to make shoes in Nepal. These shoes were created to specifically address the requirements of the local environment, topography, and way of life. Traditional Nepali footwear, also known as "khussa" or "joota," was hand-made from leather and frequently embellished with exquisite beadwork and embroidery. For festivals and other occasions, these shoes were frequently worn. In recent years, modern methods and styles have been incorporated into Nepal's shoe manufacturing business. A focus on both historic designs and current fashion trends has helped organise and increase the efficiency of the footwear industry. Today, a variety of footwear, including sandals, boots, trainers and more, are produced in Nepal by shoe manufacturers. The necessity to uphold international quality standards and competition from imported footwear are just two issues that Nepal's shoe sector has had to deal with. Nevertheless, initiatives have been made to publicise Nepali-made footwear both nationally and abroad. This entails employing eco-friendly materials, highlighting traditional workmanship, and merging cutting-edge designs.
