Step out of line and go wild with your loungewear by slipping into these delightful zebra slippers. Artisans in Kyrgyzstan hand make these charming booties for grown-ups from locally-sourced sheep's wool. The slippers are made in small batches, with the natural wool that is dyed, spun, and felted before getting cut and stitched into soft shoes that resemble this bold, black-and-white animal. Handmade in Kyrgyzstan.

Kyrgyzstan

When Kyrgyzstan became an independent country in 1991, most of the nation's talented artists fled to larger and more creative cities. But maker Gulnara Kydyrmyshova stayed behind and established a small retail store with the vision to revive Kyrgyz craftsmanship and help relieve her nation of poverty through the trade of handmade felted works. She started by conducting free sewing classes to unemployed women in her community. For over a decade, she has supported local artisans by selling felted handicrafts in her store.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Handmade Zebra Slippers:

    I was at my friends house when she was ordering a pair, I was on the fence about them, but my daughter loves Zebra's and since shes leaving for college in the fall, I thought this would be a cute gift for her to take with her instead of a stuffed animal, so I took a chance and asked my friend to order me a pair and I'm glad I did, my daughter loves them, they're comfortable and warm and she is already wearing them at home so it seems like I will be buying another pair soon for her to take with her, and she can leave these here - they're not as white as they look on the website, but that doesn't matter at all, they are the cutest

    Snug as a bug

    By 

    from Hawthorne, CA

    Comments about UncommonGoods Handmade Zebra Slippers:

    My new favorite pair of slippers to wear in the house. It's sooo cute c: The zebra design is unique! These slippers keep my clammy feet warm without getting them all sweaty and gross lol. I'm a size 8, and the medium was a little tight in the beginning but it molded to my feet after a week, so no complaints there. I'm a huge fan of natural products, and this totally fits the bill :) The natural wool smell will go away with a day or two of airing.

    Honestly, I was a bit disappointed.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Handmade Zebra Slippers:

    I was a bit disappointed with the slippers. The coloring in the photo was pretty white but the coloring of the slippers was much darker - more like a pale white with some gray thrown in. Also, I was expecting the slippers to be a bit more sturdy but they are really like wearing cloth wrapped around your foot. Still cute though.

    Warm, comfy, with a creatively unique design! When I came across these out-of-the-box animal themed slippers, I fell in love, at first sight! I purchased a pair, and was pleasantly surprised by the cut and fit of the style. A great gift for all ages!!

      Comments about UncommonGoods Handmade Zebra Slippers:

      PRODUCT WAS VERY DISAPPOINTING. FIRST PAIR RECEIVED WAS WAY TOO SNUG, I CALLED TO ASK FOR A LARGER SIZE, BUT LARGE IS THE BIGGEST SIZE MADE, SUPPOSED A 9-10. RECIPIENT WEARS 8.5-9. THEY SENT OUR ANOTHER PAIR, SAME SIZE THINKING TEMPLATE WAS CUT WRONG...NO BETTER. BOTH PAIR SMELLED LIKE CAT PEE. AFRAID TO THROW THEM IN WASHER BECAUSE THE QUALITY IS NOT GOOD AND WILL PROBABLY FALL APART.

        The Slippers Were a Hit!

        By 

        from boston, ma

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about UncommonGoods Handmade Zebra Slippers:

        I bought the zebra slippers as a birthday present for my adult daughter. Although I was a little worried about getting the right size, I followed the suggestion of the person taking my order, and she was right. The slippers are so attractive, even while funny, and very comfortable. They appear to be very well made and durable. My daughter was surprised and pleased.
