Eco Felt Mule Slipper
These handmade felt slip-on mule slippers are individually handcrafted, with inside sole padding for comfort and finished with hardwearing leather suede soles.
These slippers from Auraque are carefully hand-felted using 100% raw sheep wool, soap and water. They only use azo-free dyes for their felt. The soles are made from natural suede, sourced from a small family tannery in Kolkata and roadfreighted to Kathmandu in bulk, to be used for all their leather and suede products; all chemicals used in the tanning process are contained and reprocessed within the water treatment facility on site.
Auraques slippers are hand-felted by a women's co-operative in the Kathmandu Valley. Each piece is made around a reusable 'resist' mould and felted by hand, then felted more around reusable resin EU size 'last' to give the consistent shoe size. They are dried in the sun and the suede sole is beautifully machine-stitched into place to finish each pair.
