MITA handmade felt slip-on mule slippers are individually handcrafted 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.
Size up if in any doubt, as the slippers are comfy with thin socks and better roomy. While the slippers will mould gently to the wearer's feet with use, their lifespan will be extended if they are not stretched.
- Inside sole padding for comfort.
