The RUMEE Story
7,500 miles, one gorgeous tradition
Daring to Dream
I grew up in Lucknow, India, a city famous for its stunning, handcrafted embroidery.
For local artisans, this intricate, beautiful art is a labor of love, crafted in homes and passed down generations in families for hundreds of years.
For long, I have dreamed of bringing this beauty to the whole world.
New York City
“Where did you get your shoes?”
In 2011, I moved to New York, the city where glamour meets foot traffic. New York sparked my dream to life - I was inspired to blend handcrafted Indian embroidery and the modern comfort of western flats into gorgeous, uniquely bold shoes.
Every day I step onto the street in a pair of these stylish flats, women stop and ask, “Where did you get your shoes?”
And thus, RUMEE was born.
