Amour Bells - nanule s pričom

Sandals with a story

“Amour Bells” – posljednji modni dodatak – ručno izrađene sandale/nanule inspirirane originalnom verzijom iz 18-og stoljeća. Što više, originalni par se čuva u Zemaljskom muzeju Bosne i Hercegovine u Sarajevu - kao istinita povijesna priča.

These are no ordinary sandals. With little gold-plated or nickel-plated bells that jingle as you walk, you’ll be sure to get noticed. And that’s not all. As word has it, Bosnian women married to Beys wore these sandals in the days of the Ottoman Empire.

Sandals with little bells worn in the 18th century

Beys were men of high society who were fortunate enough to be allowed several wives. In those days the household was divided into male and female quarters.

Wearing these sandals, wives would stroll the courtyards (avlija) of their home to attract their husbands (Beys) to the bedroom.

Usually these were high heeled sandals made from walnut. In addition to the bells, they were sometimes decorated with other precious metals and gems.

If a woman dressed in red this was a distinct sign to the Bey that he was not fulfilling his romantic duties to his female partner. This silent message however could only be sent when the Bey was in a position to see the color of her clothes. The sandals, on the other hand, had an invisible, but more “far-reaching” effect.

If you want to attract that special someone with style then look no further. They can also serve as a unique gift.
