About Pegs

Tread Softly

I’m Nia from Pegs, the home of eco-friendly fabric slippers!

Each slipper is handcrafted in Leicestershire from reclaimed or vintage fabric and every pair is either unique or one of a very limited number. They might have had a past life as a shirt, a dress or even a table cloth!

Pegs slippers make an excellent gift, the newborn size are often bought as new baby gifts and people tell me they will be kept as keepsakes to remember how tiny baby’s feet once were.

Pegs is the opposite of fast fashion; no sweat shops, no over-production, just slow and mindful making.

Among the different paths life has taken me; I have been a gardener, a midwife and an antenatal coach; I've always been a dabbler and always a maker of things.

One day while reading about unethical practices in the fashion and textile industries, including the huge amounts of textiles ending up in landfill sites, I wondered if it was possible to make a babygrow out of a t shirt – I tried and it was!

I made a few and added them to my coaching website. They proved popular and I expanded my range, eventually including baby slippers.

The slippers were by far the bestsellers so Pegs today is solely (see what I did there?!) a recycled fabric slipper company!

And now, in October 2021, I am very happy to say that Pegs has partnered with Treesisters to plant a tree for every pair of slippers sold.
