Chilote House Shoe

$82

Slippers 100% hand made fair by artisan women in Patagonia using only natural sheep wool and up-cycled salmon leather. With use, they will conform to the shape of the wearer’s own foot. Includes QR code with artisan info and geo-location and a repair kit to personalize or repair as needed.

Each pair of Chilote’s authentic, award-winning, sustainable wool slippers is knitted by hand in Patagonia, Chile by women artisans and crafted from 100% Patagonian sheep’s wool. Sustainability and adhering to ethical standards are at the heart of Chilote’s mission. Chilote uses salmon skin, a by-product of the fishing industry, to create the salmon leather that is used as the sole of their slippers.

Chilote has no factory. Instead, each pair of slippers is slow-made in the homes of Patagonian women living in rural areas. Chilote’s lead artisans in Patagonia work independently orchestrating their local network and production process to ensure a beautiful, quality product every time.
