egos Copenhagen Slippers Natural Brown
These slippers from egos Copenhagen are handmade from natural sheep wool. Wool is a fantastic material for slippers as it helps regulate temperature, so your feet never feel too cold or too hot.
We love egos Copenhagen because they are fair-trade certified (by The World Fair Trade Organisation). The slippers are made in Nepal and are 100% fair trade. Egos believe that one of the best ways they can help Nepal (one of the poorest countries in the world) is through the development of good and sustainable jobs and your purchase of these slippers helps in that.
The dyes that are used are environmentally friendly. Once the felt has been made and moulded into the shoe shape, it dries naturally in the sun before another insole of felt is added, and finally the suede sole is sewn on.
I've been testing a pair of these slippers and love wearing them around the house at the weekend. The felt insoles start to mould to your feet, so they become even more comfortable the more you wear them (and they are comfortable to being with!).
Caring for your slippers:
The slippers can be vacuumed to remove dust! They can then also be washed in wool soap either by hand or in the washing machine on the wool program at 30 degrees.
After the shoe is washed, pop the wet shoe onto your foot so that it takes the correct shape again. Then remove the shoe and leave to dry naturally.
