When it comes to flaunting juttis, we seldom think of a gorgeous black pair. Golds, Silvers, Reds or Pinks become our go to choices, which is why, to break the pattern, ShilpSutra has launched an astounding pair of Black Juttis with an Aztec Civilization inspired hand work that will truly catch your attention.
Sporting a pattern derived from the old Aztec Civilization, Lady Aztec is ShilpSutra’s first pair of Juttis in black. A pop of color in the historical pattern is added by the use of crystals, stones, beads and cut sequins. A true stand out pair, this will add a dazzle to all your outfits.
As the name suggests, these pair of juttis are inspired from the Aztec Empire. There was a rich variety of art in the empire. Richly coloured clothing, architecture, ceremonial knives, head dresses – many things were adorned with jewels and feathers. It is said that the emperor never wore the same clothes twice. His head piece that supposedly belonged to Emperor Montezuma II is a splash of bright green feathers, embroidered with gold and blue. Noble families had ear pieces, bracelets and necklaces.
Statues made of stone, as well as Aztec masks, pottery, shields, knives, carved pillars and painted walls.
Art could be made with gold, silver, copper, jewels, feathers, coral, clay and stone, to name a few. As mentioned before, many of materials were not native to the region, but had to be bartered for.
Mosaics are very common in ancient Aztec art, which ia why we have brought the same look on our juttis.
