“First of all I would like to say that I am very happy with my new shoes. You and your team did a very, very nice job! Thank you for your letter. It was very surprising to find a letter in the box. This gave the shoes a very personal touch. Even the fact that you take the time to write a letter (by hand) shows that you take care about your customers. I wish more manufacturers like yours will combine perfect craftsmanship with current technologies. Keep it going, and thank you and your employees.” —Felix J. Keller, Lake Constance, Germany


“My new Peshawari Chappals have arrived from Pakistan courtesy of Markhor!! Fully recommended shoes and great service. Also sent me a cool bag.

Great shoes – sooooo comfortable! - I have been using them a lot.” — James Medd, Paris


“Got the shoes, the bag, the handwritten letter for me. I am amazed, you looks like a hundred years old company. Thank you.”

— Scott Gould, Exeter UK


“I received the Chappals, and they are wonderful! Quite comfortable, a classic design, and the rounded shape of the last was exactly what I was looking for. Before finding Hometown, I struggled to locate a high-quality pair with a non-square toe.

Thank you for the note! I hope that your international business continues to expand.”

— Jonah Cummings, Washington USA



“Received my Chappal and they look gorgeous. Size 11 is perfect fit and comfortable as well. I was also very touched by Waqas’s hand written letter. I’m proud to be your first customer to buy Chappal in India. Peace! Thanks for everything.”

— Randhir, Hyderabad India


“I am wearing formal shoes now after 9 years and they are too good. I have been searching for hand made shoes on internet for 4 days, as I reached on your website and I looked at your shoes, I instantly made my mind.This is exactly what I was looking for.”

— Saqib Mushtaq, Sadiqabad Pakistan


“The chappals were delivered and look great. I really like the authentic and entrepreneurial spirit of your company and that you can change perceptions of consumer oriented product ordering from Pakistan. Thanks for the personal service. I really hope you continue to be successful. —Imran Khan, Winston-Salem

“Just received the sandals, they look and feel great. Thank you. They fit well (size 9 as marked under sole, for European 42.5). Bravo for your entrepreneurial spirit. The Paul Smith controversy is good publicity for you!” —Pierre-Henri Cousin
