Baabuk Mel Navy Blue
Designed in Switzerland and handmade in Nepal using traditional methods
Felted wool slippers made by the traditional way: by hand using only 100% New Zealand wool, soap and water to give them a light, cozy feel that makes anywhere you wear them feel like home. The more you wear them the more they mold to your feet to give you an individual fit that’s as personal as their time-honored manufacturing process signified by the red knots on the label that are hand-stitched by expert artisans.
Natural wool from New Zealand and 100% natural crepe rubber.
Insoles: Made from wool felt for added durability, also padded for extra comfort and removable for convenience. Wool’s natural moisture wicking and anti-microbial qualities reduce sweat and odor and keep your feet feeling fresh wear after wear.
Soles: Harvested from rubber trees, the latex in these soles and the glue that holds them on is a renewable material known for its pliability, resilience and grip. The soles are hand-sewn along the edge of the slippers to withstand wear and tear and avoid uncomfortable seams for maximum longevity and comfort.
Care: Do not use the washing machine. Clean the surface with humid cloth to remove dirt. Remove any debris in the soles with tweezers.
Baabuk wanted to make slippers that weren't just comfortable for people to wear, but that they were also comfortable putting out into the world. That meant trying their hardest to make them in the most responsible way possible.
This starts with the wool - a long-lasting and renewable resource. Then they hand-make these products using the traditional art form of wool felting; a technique considered by many to be the oldest textile in the world that uses only water and soap. Since every one of their skilled artisans has their own process, each slipper they create has a unique look and feel. Every pair is finished with natural latex soles and glue sustainably harvested from rubber trees to make these shoes eco-friendly from top to bottom.
All Baabuk styles are unisex and sized in EU measurements.
