“Making Klash (Kurdish type of shoes) is a craft, and it’s very important that you have the talent and can make what the customers demand. I have tried to innovate in making Klash, I have made them in several different colors. Klash is originally white, but I have made black ones, too. When Klash gets wet, its colors are ruined, but I have made them even waterproof, and that’s very new in the industry. I have also made Klash with laces. Sometimes people demand Klash that matches the color of their Kurdish clothes, and I make it for them. I really like changing things, I like bringing in new things while keeping the authenticity of the work. On many occasions, foreigners come to us, they buy Klash and take them home with them”.
