SUSTAINABLE & ETHICAL

The most comfortable wool slippers you'll ever wear are co-created and hand made with the local community in Patagonia through a coop system of ethical production.

There is no Factory so each pair is made “slow” with care and pride by independent artisan women living in remotes rural areas.

Lead artisans are our partners; they work independently orchestrating their local network & production. Our close relationships and their pride in their craft is an integral part of the high quality standards of our sustainable slippers.


TRANSPARENT PRODUCTION

Each pair of wool slippers includes a QR code link to the specific artisan group who crafted your unique pair, showing their geo-location in Patagonia.

Each pair includes an extra salmon leather and wool kit to personalize and repair if needed.
