Giveh

Giveh or Givah is a kind of soft, comfortable, durable and handwoven-top shoe common in several parts of Iran especially in rural and mountainous areas. This Handicraft is made up of two parts: sole and upper. The sole is usually rubber or leather the upper is woven thread. Before the arrival of rubber industry to the area, Giveh-makers would use a kind of wild-bull leather to make it and the upper was of wool or cotton thread. Most rich people would wear them. With the arrival of rubber industry, lower-class people have used rubber in the sole of their Givehs.
