19th century Syrian "slippers" . Made in Aleppo or Istanbul. Aristocrat women in Damascus, Homs, Aleppo and Hama wore them as high fashion. In the public baths ( Hammams) the women wore them with a simple wooden bottom to separate their body from the bath floor that had still hot water chambers beneath the surface to keep the baths warm. In Turkey it was thought that evil possessed the still water ( جن) and it was safer to stand in such slippers.
