Happy Feet

Don't leave your feet out in the cold, bundle them up in these thick and toasty slippers fashioned from upcycled patterned sweaters. Each pair is trimmed in a berber cuff and lined in fleece to further insulate your footsies for primetime winter lounging and snuggling by the fire. Available in your choice of a down-to-earth neutral or frosty blue color scheme. Made in Michigan.

Due to the upcycled nature of these items, each slipper will vary. We cannot guarantee any patterns shown in photo will be incorporated. Sorry, no choice of pattern.

Sue Burns

Sue Burns began making her line of scarves, hats, jackets and stockings after her husband shrunk two of her sweaters. Rather than throwing them out, she made jackets for her two daughters. Soon others were requesting the custom-made pieces.

The business started in the living room, moved to the basement, and then finally got its own store in the village of Lake Leelanau in Michigan.

What began as children's clothing graduated into adult clothing because Burns wondered, "Why do kids get to have all the fun stuff to wear?"

All of Burns' products are made from 100% recycled material, mostly from second hand shops that have too much stock.
