Alana Oates, Llani


Alana wanted to create a brand for independent women. A bold spirited creative like herself. After 6 years designing for some major retailers, she wanted to create a shoe that was comfortable enough to live life in but beautiful enough for all life's activities.


Llani - a globally-inspired accessories collection, is a partnership between Alana Oates, and a coterie of immensely talented artisans & craftsmen she  met while working in India. “Llani” is Alana’s childhood nickname. Thier slippers, flats, and slides are hand-crafted with a touch of luxurious coziness that takes the edge off your day. Llani is made with our design and production partners in India. The factories they work with are female founded or family owned, where female workers have strong leadership roles at each factory. They take great care to work with only high-quality materials such as leather, suede, and genuine shearling. Their embellishments — beading, trims, and motifs, are delicately created by hand.
