Ethical Rani

If you’re someone who loves traditional attire and ethnic wear, chances are, you’ve already found your substitutes for silk and leather. Except in one department: juttis.




Juttis are comfy, stylish and complement both desi and Western attire perfectly… but they are always made of leather. The sole and the upper are made from hide, and the embellishments and threadwork often use silk thread – a big no-no for us vegans.




Ethical Rani is the brainchild of Kanika Sharma Soni. As someone who abstains from leather, silk and wool, it was during her sister’s wedding that she zeroed in on a gap in the market for vegan juttis.




She couldn’t find juttis that ticked all the boxes – cruelty-free, ethically made and environmentally responsible. So, she decided to launch her own line that would cater to all of the above, targeted at style-conscious and socially-conscious consumers.


Cruelty-Free, Eco-Friendly And Beautiful!

Ethical Rani is true to its name – it is both cruelty-free and eco-friendly. Founder Kanika Sharma Soni says, “We strive to continually minimize our impact on the planet while making sure you don’t have to sacrifice beauty and elegance when you choose cruelty-free juttis."

  • No animal products: From the soles to the uppers, every element of the jutti is devoid of animal products
  • Recycled dust bags: The juttis come in dust bags that are made from repurposed waste fabrics (sourced from local tailors and designers), in a bid to promote recycling.
  • Commited to craftsmanship: Each pair of juttis incorporates intricate and mindful design to create high-quality products that are stylish and sustainable. 
  • A style for every occasion: From elegant jewel-toned juttis for everyday wear to quirky, colourful sequinned juttis and bandhani and ikat designs, Ethical Rani has a range of beautiful footwear for work and play.
