Mustard Felt Slippers
The gift that keeps on giving 🕊💝🐾🌎 What better way to keep your feet comfy and warm, than with pretty natural wool slippers that make a difference.
Made by a women's co-operative in the Kathmandu Valley, Nepal. Each piece is individually hand-felted to the shape and size using locally sourced 100% raw sheep wool, soap and water and left to dry in the sun.
Made with inside sole padding for comfort and finished with hardwearing leather suede soles. The natural buffalo suede is sourced from a small family tannery in Kolkata and road-freighted to Kathmandu in bulk. All chemicals used in the tanning process are contained and reprocessed within the water treatment facility on site.
Wool has natural antibacterial properties and is one of the most sustainable fabrics, it is renewable, biodegradable and requires relatively little water for its production.
We recommend sizing up if in doubt, as the slippers are comfy with thin socks and better roomy. While the slippers will mould gently to the wearer's feet with use, their lifespan will be extended if they are not stretched.
Care instructions: Spot clean with a damp cloth. Do not submerge in water. Please treat with care. A suede brush may be useful for cleaning this product.
