A simple pair of slippers with low-quality leather can end up being as much as 150 rupees per piece without the packaging and transportation cost.

With innovative designs, comfortable soles, and high-quality stitch work, a manufacturer can bear a cost anywhere around 500 upto 1500 rupees for a decent pair.
Depending on the quality of leather and where it has been obtained from, it can cost about 100-200 rupees per square foot. All of these exclude the packaging, transport and branding expenses.
