The BIDI handmade felt bootee slippers are individually handcrafted, with inside sole padding for comfort and finished with hardwearing leather suede soles. Each piece is made around a reusable 'resist' mould and felted by hand, then felted more around reusable resin. They are dried in the sun and the suede sole is beautifully machine-stitched into place to finish each pair. Wool is one of the most sustainable fabrics in existence, it is renewable and biodegradable and requires relatively little water for its production. Wool has natural antibacterial properties
We highly recommend sizing up if in any 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.
