Mukta Shoes Industry

Moirangthem Muktamani, better known as the owner of “Mukta Shoes Industry”, is a National Award winner and State Awardee for handicraft on micro, small and medium enterprise. She is among the 100 successful entrepreneurs from Northeast India. Muktamani was born and brought up in Kakching, a place under Thoubal District, Manipur. Her shoes are unique and different from the ones we see in the market, in that they are hand knitted woolen shoes. 15 years ago, when she could not afford to buy a pair of school shoes for her daughter, this Manipuri mother of four used to repair her daughter’s torn shoes with woolen yarn so that she would not be punished in school. “Making shoes was a necessity for me, but it has turned out to be a rewarding vocation”, says Muktamani. She thanks her daughter’s teacher for the change in her fortunes. “When the teacher noticed that my daughter Ashima was not wearing shoes matching the school uniform, he called her out. She broke down for fear of being punished. But instead of scolding her, the teacher admired her pair of hand-woven shoes and ordered a pair for his daughter. That was my first order,” she recalls.

Muktamani uses woolen thread and hard rubber soles to make all kinds of shoes, including boots. Wool is given to us by nature and never exceeded in quality by any human made material. And, wool is a renewable and sustainable material which can be absorbed by nature again after use. No other material offers such comfort for wearing. After all it is designed by nature to protect and cover skin - all year round. No other fabric has the ability to absorb as much moist as wool, and no other fabric lets your skin breathe so easily.

Woolen knitted shoes are ergonomically designed and hand knitted to wrap cosily around your feet, making them really comfortable to wear. The fact that they are breathable ensures that your feet don't sweat unlike other shoes, however keeping your feet warm at the same time. Woolen knitted shoes are washable and also extremely lightweight. These shoes are also suprisingly durable as the shoes are knitted whole without seams.

There is a big demand today in the trade fairs for Muktamani’s hand knitted shoes in the international market especially from Japan, Australia, Mexico and others. Muktamani is not just another successful artisan but also someone who has transformed the lives of many underprivileged women by training them and making them financially independent. The art is serving as a means of livelihood for many families in the area. Today, Muktamani and her team continues to churn out various excellent designs of knitted woolen shoes. Many of them are proudly showcased on giskaa.com (tip: search for 'Mukta' in the Search box).
