ANNA NERA made these felt slippers in Black, Gray and White. Suitable for man and women. They are so comfy, keep in mind to take them off when you go outside… We added a suede sole for slippery situations.
Know the story behind your product & you will enjoy and appreciate the use of the product much more! ANNA NERA only works with WFTO Fairtrade organisations. These enterprises transform local communities, pioneer upcycling, empower women and practice organic farming. Their impact goes far and wide. These are the enterprises of the new economy.
I travelled back in Nepal and Bangladesh to work and meet the women behind, and make a new and cool collection together. I try to capture the story behind the artisans to bring this closer to you ;-)
About Felt items made by hand
In Nepal they are masters in felt making. This organisation is run by the second generation and produce felt items for brands all over the world. The New Zealand wool come in great batches and is made in felt by a time consuming process. The artisans, (mostly women) are the real masters. They role the wool for a long time in soft soap until it is the right quality of felt. After that they can make anything you want from the felt. The felt slippers are hand folded over wooden molds and are finished with a suede sole.
