FeltWoolSlippers' Profile

About

Hey!

My name is Dovile, I'm a BIG sister :) Actually we're 2 sisters Dovile and Kornelija who have started working together - making felted wool slippers since 2011. We were inspired by our grandmother who was hand making felt shoes and wool snow boots. She was the best wool felting master.
According our Dad's stories, he was wearing felted slippers handmade by his Mother for inside the house and the tall kind of wool shoes, that called valenki boots with rubber soles for outdoors.

We have decided to continue this tradition and to start the amazing journey working with wool. We combine ancient heritage wool footwear making traditions with a modern twist.
Our studio is located in a small Northern European country Lithuania, city Vilnius.

WHAT WE MAKE
Felted wool slippers, wool house shoes, wool snow boots and felt clogs - for Women and Men. Collection for Kids is coming soon.
No stitches, no sewing - our wool footwear is seamless. This ensures the warmth for your feet. We are also making customized orders and gifts for all occasions.

WHY WE ARE UNIQUE
We love to play with amazing colors. We add colored rubber soles. We mix and match colorful wool. And after a long research and own tests, we finally found the durable, lightweight, flexible and trendy rubber soles for outdoors. So now you can bravely walk on snow.
We're inviting you to mix and match colors together.

WHAT WE USE
Each pair is handmade using a the ancient traditional wet felting technique with organic (no synthetic) wool and water only. The rubber soles glued (and stitched if needed) by our hands using waxed thread and non toxic adhesives.

INSPIRATION
During the last 12 years we have worked in the various companies. This experience taught us a lot. Now we're doing what we really love. We do strongly believe that everything is possible to make, if we put all your mind, creativity, experience and efforts in it.
