The felt in Tengries is soft and pliable, so it will fit your feet like a warm hug. Tengries are kept snug by an elastic that helps them form to your feet. These feature high-backs, and a pull-on tab. The leather on this sole is a vegetal tanned leather that tanned without the use of toxic chromium. The result is a thicker and plusher leather that wears in nicely. We do highly discourage wearing this in any wet conditions.

Care: Wool felt wicks moisture and resists odor.  If you need to clean your slippers, spot or dry clean. Avoid getting wet, as they will shrink and become misshapen.

At home or at the office, Kyrgies slippers have you covered every season of the year. These super hygge wool slippers are slow made with centuries-old heritage techniques by the best wool felters in the world — women artisans in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. All of the artisans are paid a living wage in their women-run factory. Each pair of Kyrgies is constructed from wet felted wool that keeps your feet the perfect temperature year-round, is odor resistant, breathable and exceptionally durable. The sheep who provide the wool live in open pastures from spring to autumn and move to the yards of Kyrgyz villagers during the winter months. Raw wool is sheered from the sheep and brought to the Kyrgies factory, where it is cleaned, combed, dyed (with food coloring) and weighed for each individual pair of Kyrgies. The wool is then pressed together using the centuries-old technique with only water and natural soap and then rolled by hand into forms drying into a firm but pliable shape. The entire process takes six weeks from raw wool to shoe. Kyrgies uses all-natural, vegetable-tanned leather that is tanned without chrome or chromium in their leather-soled shoes.
