Behind the slippers

In this story behind the products we share the process of preparing the felt that we use for our slippers with you. The process and recycling are something we really care about and would love to share the experience with you.

Firstly, we would like you to meet Igor. He is a wonderful person who plays an important part of both the creating and the recycling process since he cuts the felt into the proper shape and makes sure that no tiny piece of the unused felt is thrown into the trash bin.

Secondly we want to involve some humble bragging, as we are very proud to announce that by the end of this year we'll have collected a ton and a half of unused felt, such as you see in the pictures.

The reason that is so amazing is that we send this waste to Thermo Team GmbH where it is remade into alternative fuel and is used as such in cement factories. Our felt's story does not end in a pile of trash.

But even before that, we still try our best to use as much of the material as we can by making smaller products, which you'll have a chance to admire soon.

And at last we have to mention our loyal costumers who send us their retired slippers to recycle. Your slippers have been taken good care of. Thank you for recycling & saving with us.
