Our Team

Fuchsia Shoes features beautifully handcrafted ballet flats that bring with them a heartwarming story. We realized that such a combination is missing in the Western retail market today. Our search for a product to fill this gap led us to discover the challenges faced by the native artisans, such as lack of exposure to their art and low wages.

Product Innovation

We’re not selling the same shoes artisan are selling at local market. Instead we modified the traditional designs to ensure they meet the needs of our American customers, with adding rubber soles, soft padding to improve comfort, durability and functionality.

Pleasantly surprised - Review by Kathleen A. on 21 Jun 2019

"I was a bit skeptical when I ordered these because they are so flat. I normally need more support in a shoe. However these flats have a nice cushion in them which helps a lot. I ordered my usual size and fit perfectly. "
