Materials: felt, wool, azo free, natural melange, handmade, sustainable, eco, antibacterial, handcrafted, suede
The BIDI slipper boots feature inside sole padding, hardwearing suede soles and outer side slit to ankle bone for pull-on (but not fall off!) design.
Dimensions: Available in alternate sizes EU37 (UK4) to EU45 (UK10.5). We recommend sizing up if in any doubt about sizing. While the slippers will mould gently to the wearer's feet with use, their lifespan will be extended if they are not stretched.

Our slippers are carefully hand-felted using 100% raw sheep wool, soap and water. Wool is one of the most sustainable fabrics in existence; renewable and biodegradable, it requires relatively little water for its production. Wool has natural antibacterial properties. We only use azo-free dyes for our felt. Read our blog post about how our felt slippers are made here: https://www.auraque.com/blogs/news/how-are-our-felt-slippers-made. The natural buffalo suede is sourced from a small family tannery in Kolkata and roadfreighted to Kathmandu in bulk, to be used for all our leather and suede products. All chemicals used in the tanning process are contained and reprocessed within the water treatment facility on site. Leather is the traditional material for 3rd wedding anniversary gifts.
Our slippers are hand-felted by a women's co-operative in the Kathmandu Valley, Nepal. 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. AURA QUE have been working with the group since 2013. AURA QUE products are individually handcrafted and the unique story behind each AURA QUE product enhances its charm!
Care instructions: Spot clean with damp cloth. Do not submerge in water. A suede brush may be useful.

I love them. Comfy, sturdy, beautiful - best lockdown purchase so far!
The boots are amazing, very good quality, very well made, and really comfy. The seller was also very helpful and very quick when replying to my questions about measurements. Thanks again for the great boots :-)
Oh my days!! These slippers are soooo good. If you’re considering purchasing these then do it. Immediately. They are deliciously comfortable and so snug; my feet are never cold, and in my cold draughty house they’re definitely needed. This is now my second pair. I’m in between sizes and with my first pair I sized down, but this pair I sized up. I really recommend going up if you’re in between sizes. These are the best slippers and will never purchase anything else.
