Foot Petals

Lay flowers at your feet with lush mums bursting with texture, comfort, and durability. Hand-felted by artisans in Nepal of 100% sheep's wool, each pair is a durable, wearable work of art. Rubber soles keep moisture and mud from seeping into your shoes' soles as you make short trips to the mailbox or the store. Designed by New Hampshire artists Lesley Hansard and Rebecca Welsh. Handmade in Nepal. Due to the handmade nature of this product, sizing may vary slightly.

Lesley Hansard and Rebecca Welsh

"Two years ago we received an email in our junk mail box which we shouldn't have really opened, but we did anyway," recall designers Lesley Hansard and Rebecca Welsh of the introduction to their artisans. "A young man found our website and said he loved our designs and would love to work with us."

It was perfect timing for the duo: After 14 years of hand-felting their own designs, they were considering new manufacturing options. "We jumped on the next plane and trained the Nepali felt-makers to make our designs. We met the whole family and became good friends."

Hansard and Welsh go to great lengths to ensure their artisans have access to health insurance. Working conditions are a top priority. Their Nepali partners maintain fair treatment, allowing artisans to bring small children to work.

"It's great to learn new skills," they beam. "We're becoming business women as well as felt-makers."

      These are so much fun to wear. I love the rubber sole because I can slip outside for a second. They are very comfortable and true to size. They are very unique. I love them.

                  Flower was not as pictured, similar but not as graduated. It was more bunched up and high on the slipper rather than spread out and graduated as shown. The slipper runs small and is tight accross the top of my foot.
