Sustainable Materials

All our footwear is handmade from natural, renewable or repurposed materials to keep our impact on the planet to a minimum. 


Created by Mother Nature herself, wool is a natural and sustainable fibre grown by sheep on a simple diet of sunshine, water, fresh air and juicy grass. Made as part of a natural cycle that is gentle on the planet, wool is warm, durable, naturally insulating, and has antibacterial properties. Perfect for creating snug and warm slippers. Combined with a touch of bamboo yarn to create a unique sturdiness and durability to your slippers. Each slipper is finished a soft suede sole that is carefully handstitched into place.

Known best perhaps as a staple for pandas, bamboo is one of the world’s most sustainable resources. The fastest growing grass, the plant can grow up to 119 cm in a day and doesn’t need replanting after harvest due to its vast root system. Created using plant fibres, bamboo viscose is known for its softness and breathability. It’s also 100% biodegradable. 


Soft white fluffy balls grown in a protective seed, cotton is used globally more than any other natural fibre. A durable textile offering soft, breathable all-year-round comfort, cotton is ideal in long hot humid summers, as the fabric “breathes” absorbing perspiration that evaporates through the material. Leaving feet feeling fresh and airy.

Known as the “golden fibre” due to its versatility, jute is second only to cotton in its production and wide range of uses. Spun into strong, coarse thread, jute rope is traditionally used for espadrille soles. Naturally cooling and completely environmentally-friendly we didn’t tie ourselves in knots with our decision to use jute. Adding an organic rubber sole to the jute soles of your espadrilles offers extra durability.
