PAIO was founded with one simple agenda – to create cruelty-free, sustainable, and conscious fashion with strong design elements inspired by everything around us, while making sure each product is oh-so-comfortable!

Each product at PAIO is carefully handcrafted by traditional karigars who have inherited & perfected their craft since generations. This not only supports the broader community but also keeps their craft alive. It is our strong endeavor to provide sustenance to local artisans at the grassroots, greatly improving the lives and futures of the underprivileged and their families.

The journey of PAIO shoes begins with a design or pattern. These are inspirations from a theme, a picture, a thought or a conception out of scribbles. The design is the foremost step in crafting a perfect PAIO.

Almost every pair designed in our PAIO studio is unique and requires a unique pattern depending on the design. Once we have the pattern ready the magic of crafting the shoes begin.

The cut pattern is then placed over the last and nailed in. The remaining patterns such as the insole, sole and outsole are attached.

Based on the heel type and height selected, the appropriate heel is chosen and attached to the shoes. Once the shoe patterns have been attached over the last, the entire shoe is glued together. Any excess material is trimmed off.

Once the shoe is ready each pair goes through a quality & finishing check. In this step a thorough quality check is conducted on the shoe for any defects, changes or trimmings required. The shoes are then left on the last to dry for over a day.

As a PETA-approved Vegan footwear brand, we are committed to using only vegan alternatives to genuine leather & variety of fabrics such as cotton, hemp, and jute in our collections. Over the years, PAIO has garnered a loyal base of customers worldwide, who cherish ethics just as much as their love for eclectic fashion & design. It is also our strong endeavour to provide sustenance to local artisans at the grassroots, greatly improving the lives and futures of the underprivileged and their families
