Portofino Velvet Baba
Our newest Velvet Baba, Portofino. Made in El Paso using Sabah’s standard of high quality materials — a combination of our veg tanned undyed leather lining and bull leather sole, and a velvet fabric upper sourced from one of the best velvet suppliers in Italy. This velvet is resistant yet soft, featuring a rich almost iridescent shade of violet purple. We named it “Portofino” after the colorful village on the Mediterranean coast of Italy. They remind us of long strolls over cobblestone streets along the riviera-- styled both casual and sophisticated. We like to think of the Portofino Baba as effortlessly classic that way, wear them with your favorite pair of jeans and a t-shirt, or dress them up for an evening out.Read More

We advise against cleaning with water or detergents of any kind. Clean with a woolen cloth or gentle brush stroking the velvet in the direction of the pile. A gentle steam could be used to improve any crushing or inconsistencies in the velvet.
IMPORTANT: Please refer to our size guide before ordering, as our Babas made in El Paso have a unique fit.
Made in El Paso
These Babas are produced at the Sabah Workshop in El Paso, Texas. They are not your typical slippers! We use natural, high quality leathers, including a very special undyed vegetable tanned leather lining so that the Baba will form to the foot over time. El Paso has enabled us to utilize materials from all over the world, in the case of our Velvet Babas, a 100% viscose velvet fabric from one of the best Italian suppliers. Each pair is thoughtfully created by hand and by name, from concept to execution.
