An extraordinary slipper, hand-crafted from a piece of wool and then put into a shape that will fit the foot - 100% handwork. At the foot Tofvel is a pleasure - walking is extremely comfortable. Whether it’s summer or winter, with this special slipper we guarantee a stable foot climate.

Not far from Kathmandu in Nepal, a unique slipper is made. The production of “Tofvel” creates jobs for women in this poor, mountainous country. Employees receive a fair wage, which they can invest in their education and that of their children.

The wool felt is made from 100% Nepalese sheep’s wool and contains no chemicals or synthetic materials. It is prepared entirely by hand. First, the wool is washed and combed. Wool felt is made by placing one layer of wool on top of another at a right angle and moistening it with hot soapsuds (without any chemicals). The material is then rubbed, causing the fibres to interlock. This is a lengthy process which requires a great deal of skill. Eco-friendly dyes are used to colour the wool.

Each pair of “Tofvel” is personalised with the maker’s embroidered “signature” and a card containing a photo and additional information about the product. This means customers know exactly who made their pair of “Tofvel”.

It is important to look after these wool felt slippers properly. With the right care, they will last for many years.

“Tofvel” is a slipper, so it is only designed for indoor use.

Warm, roomy, handmade in Nepal

These are every bit as good as other felt houseboots I’ve tried and a better fit for my wide feet than some. Very comfortable and warm. The red is a good colour. Was surprised to see they are handmade in Nepal, owing to a label naming the maker. The hope that there’s an enterprise providing much-needed work for women there is a bonyd

Dieser Hausschuh ist wirklich einzigartig. Und 100% Handarbeit ein echt toller Schuh und noch dazu total angenehmes Fußklima und kuschelich warm. Ich kann diesen Haussuch nur weiter empfehlen. Auch Bär Straßenschuhe sind eine wohltat für die Füße.

es ist nicht mein erster und nicht mein letzter Schuh von BÄR. Warm, bequem, stabil, und die Farbe rot ist super - mit Sohle, damit kann man auch Holztreppen sicher laufen!
