made in britain
can be personalised
These comfy hand made leather slippers have a natural rubber crepe sole and can be personalised.
We handmake the slippers in our Cambridge workshop. They are breathable, natural and are great for relaxing at the start and end of the day. Plus the waterproof rubber sole means they are also suitable to nip outdoors. They would make a great gift for a Dad or Grandad.
Inspired by a visit to the worlds largest shoe collection in Northampton where amazingly shoes from hundreds if not thousands of years ago have survived. I especially like the "time capsule" shoes found in chimney breasts and under floorboards. I have tried to combine the crepe soles of Desert boots with the foot covers (vamps) of the Tudor period.
The slippers are available in an unlined thick waxy cowhide which is a beautiful textured dark brown. They can also be personalised with either an embossed monogram or an engraved message.
We can add a Monkey Birthday card to your order if the slippers are a birthday gift.
Made from durable real leather and natural rubber crepe. The slippers are long lasting and can be resoled.
These slippers are a handmade product made in a leather workshop in a very low tech,. old fashioned way. Sometimes a little glue may be visible on the inside of the slipper although we try to avoid this, sometimes the hot foil process can be a little temperamental as we are working with natural materials and everyone is different. There can be some marking on the inside of the slippers as the shoe lasting process which gives the slippers their shape can cause denting and slight colour change on the internal sole of the slipper in places. There will also be a size written on the base of the shoe as to mark it properly will require an entire machine which at this time we don't own. Despite all of this we believe we have made a lovely product, we enjoy making and it is great to sell and wear. Please feel free to ask questions about anything described here if you are concerned.
Slippers are sized to UK men's sizes, they are quite wide fitting.
