With a design inspired by traditional Hungarian moccasins, Pikkpack provides shoe-making kits for you to make your own slip-ons.
The DIY wave has quickly progressed from home-knitted hats and sweaters to our latest find Pikkpack, a brand selling three-piece shoe-making kits for consumers to stitch their own slip-ons at home. The design is inspired by traditional Hungarian moccasins and can be customised with different coloured uppers in leather or rubber and accentuated stitchings. The founder Sarah Gulyas means that the idea of home-manufacturing can work against fast fashion by encouraging a stronger product-user relationship. With shoes being one of the most complex fashion products to construct and thus one that costs the planet the most, we love to see this minimal DIY solution pushing for lesser environmental impact and progressive transparency within footwear.
