The design story
I started designing these slippers recalling Japanese traditional wooden clogs, called "GETA". I was thinking of it's shape: each pair's shape from the top is a square, symmetrical: there is no difference between right and left GETA that you don't have to care which pair of GETA you must put on your foot.

In early years I was hand-printing a recipe of Finnish food (which was hand-written by my husband's grandmother many, many decades ago) on the bottoms of the slippers as cleats. The printing ink made rough texture that prevented slipping, but the wool felt soles were worn-out over time, and I got requests from my customers to make them more durable. Now I'm using recycled leather for the soles. I had to raise the price, but I believe this way is more ecological!

Specifications of design and materials

  • Recycled leather is used for the sole, which prevents from slipping, and strengthens the durability of the slippers.
  • The color of the leather is not possible to choose, but mostly they are brown or beige.
  • The recycled leather is sewn after being glued with milk glue to the bottom part of felt.
  • Top part of the slippers are made of 3 parts of felt making an organic shape, which are "zig-zag"-sewn together then straight stitched to the bottom.
  • Insoles are fixed by fabric hook-and-loop fastener inside the slippers
  • Designing and sewing works are done by me and cutting is done by Finnish company. Made in Finland.

Industrial wool felt
Industrial wool felt is a non-woven cloth that is produced by matting, condensing and pressing woolen fibers by machines under high temperature and pressure. The surface is smooth, soft and comfortable, and the structure is dense and strong. Wool felt is an eco-friendly, natural material.

Care instruction
Spot clean, hand-wash only in sopy warm water (under 30ºC). Not machine washable. (The felt will shrink and you'll have a smaller slippers.)
The felt will be worn and pill same as wool sweater over time. You can "shave" its surface by a sharp razor then it will become like new.
