Modern and yet traditional – check out these Turkish Slippers!
“Turkish slippers. Given to me on February 8th 1958 by M.E. Hovmand Hansen, who had acquired them in 1934 from a group of Greek sailors on board a steamboat called Pirdus. The slippers are modern. On the sole there is a tag saying “Istanbul, Yerlimamuleti, Merkanterliesileb” in European letters. They are made of green velvet, quite high-heeled. In fact they are quite modern, touristy (with the European letters!), but the silver embroideries on the toes are more traditional.” – Søren L. Tuxen
