Announcement   Hand printed and made with Love, natural fibre slippers in colours of the rainbow.

Lets talk slippers, those of you who are not familiar with the Steiner philosophy may not be aware of the importance of daily rhythms within this system. Children are encouraged with regular activities to enjoy the rhythms of life and to feel in touch with the changes in seasons and weather.
As part of this we create certain the distinction between outside play and indoor time by the changing of shoes. Wearing soft, nurturing shoes indoors helps us to feel warm and cosy and can help to stop those chills.

The Sunshadow range was designed specifically for that purpose, using natural fibres, cotton, leather and pure wool felt. These allow the feet to ‘breath’ and can be happily worn in warmer or cooler weather.
All our slippers are washable and are made with great craftsmanship so will last you ages!
Each pair of slippers is uniquely created to be just as individual as you are, the dye is low toxic and sun reactive which means the process is very weather reliant, good job we have plenty of sunshine here! The colours are beautiful forest greens, ocean blues, sunset oranges and sun blossom pinks. The motifs are from nature, butterflies and dragonflies, frogs and possums, dolphins and turtles – no corporate brand names here.

We also have vegan soles cut from rubber for those who prefer not to wear leather and a new range created from bamboo velour which is like wraaping your feet in cotton wool :)

We have a full range of product available on our website at

Each pair of these unique slippers is hand made by myself and my children at our home just outside Byron Bay in the beautiful region of Northern Rivers NSW.

We have created a line of natural fibre, light shoes for indoor wear that are as individual as each pair of feet which snuggle into them!

The tops are two layers of cotton, hand printed with a beautiful motif from nature. The soles are the softest leather and inside are a cosy insole made from 100% pure wool felt.

This business has been supplying the majority of Steiner Schools in Australia for over 10 years, They are perfect for wearing in the classroom or around the house – wooden floors, flagstones, your feet will be nurtured and comfy all through the winter.

As we find that all standard sizes vary so much, our slippers are measured in Cm’s to give you the perfect fit. The easiest way is to draw around the feet in question (also can be used as a cute wall hanging after!) Measure the foot size from heel to top of longest toe, and you will have an accurate idea of sizing. If for example the foot size is 17 – 18 cm’s I would advise buying your slippers in size 18 cms (British sizing approx 11.5 and European 30) If you prefer more growing room you could maybe go up one extra cm.
I know this seems like a bit of effort but I recommend this just because I want you to be thrilled with your slippers when you get them.

Payment
I prefere PayPal payments for overseas buyers - it's just so quick and easy.
I still have an American cheque in my wallet that will cost me more to bank than it's value!!!!!
If you don't want to do paypal but would still like to order please convo me so that we can work something out.
Shipping
I post daily, and we are always careful to ensure your parcel is well wrapped for the journey – where possible we always choose the most environmentally friendly option to continue our ethos of treading as lightly as possible on this earth.

If you have several family members or friends that need their feet snuggled it’s a great idea to order together and I will always reduce postage costs for multiple purchases
Refunds and Exchanges
I am happy to guarantee the workmanship of these slippers for a full two years or until they are outgrown.
We have had much experience with many families over the years and it’s always great to see a younger sibling recycling their elder brother or sister’s slippers – it means that they can stand much wear and tear!!!

If when you receive your slippers you are not totally satisfied with them please let me know as soon as possible ( but certainly within a week) and i will refund as soon as you return them ( minus the postage charge)
I do not refund if you have ordered the wrong size so please, please take the time to measure toes properly!!
Additional policies and FAQs
We have a well established wholesale business and would be happy to discuss this with you.
We also have lots of women who buy in bulk from us to onsell at their school or community group - it's a great little business if you have young children. If this would be of interest to you please convo me and i will happily give you all the information, i also have testimonials from happy customers which you can see.
