It is not pink, it is not purple, it is Byzantium! Introducing AC AnatolianCraft’s specially hand-embroidered Byzantium slippers inspired by the royal colour of Byzantium.

In the Eastern Roman Empire, purple was worth more than gold. Do you know that 'The Palace of the Porphyrogenitus’ literally translates to the palace of the purple born? The palace was located on the land walls of Constantinople, today’s Istanbul; at that time the largest, finest and wealthiest metropolis of the known world. Make the first step with Byzantium slippers and enter to the world of Byzantine Istanbul!
