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."

    Comments about MUM FELT SLIPPERS:

    I love these slippers. I had to glue them a few times as the sole would pull apart from the body of the slipper. Now there are holes all over the edge of my right slipper and I can't fix that. I am super sad as I love these slippers and don't want to shell out another [$] for a pair that will just rip again.

    Pros

    • Cute

    Cons

    • Shoes of unequal size
    • Very slippery soles

    Best Uses

    • Comfort
    • Lounging

    Comments about MUM FELT SLIPPERS:

    Very cool looking, but one slipper fit and the other was way too small. The danger is the slippery felt sole which needs a non skid surface, product was of lower quality than I expected.

      got these for my aunt -- hope they aren't too small for her. they are cute and funky enough to be more interesting than just an average slipper. they seem slightly more expensive than they should be.

          We loved these slippers - I bought them for my mom last year - but they developed holes in the uppers pretty quickly. They were so cute though!

          Comments about MUM FELT SLIPPERS:

          I need to return this product because the decoration on each slipper is a different size. Neither decoration on the shoes matches the purse that is supposed to match it. Also the black slipper has pictured a white felt decoration, but the decoration has odd grey underside. Quality control is clearly a huge issue here - these items should be checked.

            The HUGE blooming flowere slippers were a gift to my "hippy" sister who is also a wonderful gardener and artist in Moose Jaw Canada! They looked PERFECT for the long winters when she'll be "longing" for flowers!
