  • Want cosy toes this winter? ❄️ Yes please! 😍 
These beautiful light grey felt slippers are handmade in Nepal from New Zealand wool.
The Association for Craft Producers (ACP) in Nepal has been helping to revive the traditional craft of felting 🙌🏼
Felting is a simple process of bonding wool fibres together using motion and heat and water. The wool is first dyed, with AZO free dyes, then the slippers are felted on a mould and the leather sole is stitched on.
Available online and in-store .
