1) Sheep shearing   

Cutting off woolen fleece takes place in spring. Hair shaving tool is run along a sheeps skin and without any pain, takes off wool fibers.

2) Cleaning wool

 The process begins by sorting raw wool and cleaning to remove all the dirt.

3) Carding wool

 After being cleaned, wool fibers are untangled so that they lay parallel to each other.

4) Wet-felting

By adding hot water and soap, we roll felt until achieving the necessary shape, density and thickness.

5) Drying

After an item has been shaped by hand, we dry them on  shoe molds.

6) Shaving

Felt items are shaved on all sides in order to remove loose fibers and to ensure that surface is smooth.

7) Outsoles

Leather outsoles are glued to felt slippers and sewn around the edges. Natural rubber outsoles are just glued.

8) Wastewater treatment

Mechanical filters, chemical and biological water cleaning systems process wastewater caused during the manufacturing processes.

1) Preparing felt sheets

We prepare felt sheets with the necessary thickness, density and weight for each style of slippers. Each sheet is wet-felted, dryed and shaved on the surface.

4) Forming

The preforms are worn on the shoe molds, ironed on the outside and the form is corrected by a shoe hammer.

2) Cutting

On felt sheets we draw shoe patterns and each pattern is cut by using specially designed pattern maker knives.

5) Outsoles

We layer felt soles inside and outsoles on the outside.

3) Sewing

The felt patterns are then sewn together on a machine to create preform of slippers.

6) Quality check

Once ready, newly formed slippers are quality checked, cleaned with forceps and shaved to clean away the unnecessary fibers.
