Maruti’s roots lie in the Netherlands; in Weert, to be precise, surrounded by fields and water. This is the ideal location for inspiration from nature and with lots of freedom to experiment. Our shoe design is impelled by the passion to make really beautiful shoes and the excitement of working with new materials.
A small, dedicated team is working on the collection. From marketer and designer to intern, everyone thinks and creates together – like one big family. Our motive is simple: we “just” want to make beautiful shoes! Both in design and quality.
Every season we experiment with different techniques to develop new materials and prints. Because we work with natural materials, different painting techniques and experimental washings, not one pair is exactly the same. This makes each Maruti product unique.
OUR ICON SHOE: THE GIMLET
The Gimlet is a simple women’s shoe made from printed hair on leather, with an animal or fashion print, named after the cocktail of the sophisticated twenties. Because of the clean design, the furry look and statement prints, the Gimlet quickly attracted attention among the fashion in-crowd. As well as the successful animal prints, each season we also add new fashion prints to the ever growing Gimlet collection: splashes, metallics and moonscapes. And it also comes in little girls sizes!
We deal consciously with our materials, and from the leftover leather we also create other products, such as bracelets, bags, wallets and belts.
