Moroccan Babouche

Moroccan babouche shoes, also known as Moroccan slippers, are traditional footwear that originated in Morocco. They are characterized by their unique design, vibrant colors, and intricate craftsmanship. Taking care of your Moroccan babouche shoes will help maintain their beauty and extend their lifespan. Here are some tips on how to care for your babouche:

  1. Avoid water exposure: Moroccan babouche shoes are typically made of leather or suede, and they are not water-resistant. It's important to keep them away from water or excessive moisture as it can damage the material and cause it to lose its shape. If your babouche gets wet, let them air dry naturally, away from direct heat sources.

  2. Protect from dirt and stains: Use a protective spray suitable for the type of leather or suede your babouche shoes are made of. This will help repel dirt, stains, and liquids. Be sure to follow the instructions on the spray and test it on a small, inconspicuous area before applying it to the entire shoe.

  3. Clean gently: To remove dirt or stains, gently brush your babouche shoes using a soft-bristle brush or a suede brush. For leather babouche, you can use a damp cloth to wipe off any dirt. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners as they can damage the material.

  4. Allow them to breathe: After wearing your babouche shoes, give them time to air out and breathe. Avoid storing them in a closed, airtight space as it can cause the shoes to develop an unpleasant odor. Instead, place them in a well-ventilated area.

  5. Store properly: When not in use, store your babouche shoes in a cool and dry place, away from direct sunlight. Stuff them with tissue paper or shoe inserts to help them retain their shape. Avoid storing them in plastic bags, as this can promote moisture buildup.

  6. Regular maintenance: Periodically condition your leather babouche shoes using a leather conditioner or cream. This will help moisturize the leather, keep it supple, and prevent it from cracking or drying out. Follow the instructions provided with the conditioner and apply it evenly using a soft cloth.

By following these care tips, you can keep your Moroccan babouche shoes looking beautiful and preserve their quality.
