The MITA handmade felt slip-on mule slippers are individually handcrafted, with inside sole padding for comfort and finished with hardwearing leather suede soles.
Care instructions: Spot clean with damp cloth. Do not submerge in water. A suede brush may be useful.
Our slippers are carefully hand-felted using 100% raw sheep wool, soap and water. Wool is a natural insulator, with high breathability, and it resists odours due to its natural antibacterial properties. Wool is one of the most sustainable fabrics in existence; renewable and biodegradable, it requires relatively little water for its production. Our wool is mulesing free.
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.
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!
