Amritsar, May 5 : Juti Kasuri, a traditional foot wear of Pakistan's Kasur District is becoming the latest fashion among people of Amritsar.

The elegant style, beautiful designs and soft leather of the footwear is attracting the fashion lovers.

"These colorful bright Kasuri Juti with embroidery works fits with the every type of dresses and I wear not just for craze but for traditional look," said Rosy, a customer.

The cost of ladies Kasuri juti starts from Rupees three hundred to two thousand and men's footwear costs Rupees five hundred to two thousand a pair.

The traditional teela or zeri wali embroidery has been replaced by synthetic thread but the look and designs is a magnet for any traditional fashion lover.

Satish Kumar, a shopkeeper, who is selling the 'Juti Kasuri' like hot cakes these days, said: "The world of Punjabi juti is no more restricted to a limited style or color, now the designers have experimented with every color and material like embroidery and stone work to give an adorable look to footwear".

However, the rigid visa norms between India and Pakistan have become a major hurdle against the growth of leather trade.

If India and Pakistan ease the visa norms and open up Wagah land route for lather trade, our sale would increases in many folds, Satish added.

According to a rough estimate, a dozen shopkeepers in Amritsar are engaged in the Pakistani footwear business and their turn over is in tune of 15 crores.
