about

Le moccasin zippé is a footwear brand devoted to functional design and traditional Georgian craftsmanship. Founded in 2012 with the launch of the iconic zip-able loafers, the brand reinterprets universal codes into a brave new vision of the classic moccasin. Evolved shapes and chromatic leathers transform the ultimate casual shoe, each pair a product of dedication and love.

Our founder Ketevane Maissaia grew up in Tbilisi and studied fashion design in Paris, but considers herself a Georgian accessories designer first. She has lent her creative expertise to designing leather-goods for Hermès, Bottega Veneta, Loewe and other luxury brands. Maissaia’s singular point-of-view is at the heart of Le moccasin zippé, channelling timeless practicality into classic styles and seasonal collections.

Each item is handmade in an atelier in Tbilisi, where artisanal shoemaking is a long-lived tradition. We work with naturally processed materials and locally sourced methods of production to ensure that sustainability always remains an essential part of the bigger picture. The atelier offers repairs for all moccasins zippés because we believe that a shoe well-cared for can last a lifetime.
