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."

        I bought these slippers as a gift for a friend "who has everything" and they are perfect! She didn't have these, and she loves them. I like them so much, I'm getting myself a pair. They are a "work of art" that feel good and look fabulous!

              I was looking for a Warm slipper that was easy to slip on (no back) yet stayed on my foot (high front). This is it. I have foot problems and have a difficult time finding shoes/slippers.
              Plus they are Fun to look at. Can't beat wool for warmth.

                These are adorable Lesley and Rebecca. They are adorable, funky and so unusual I would definitely wear slippers. I'm kinda like the one who doesn't wpend money on things the world won't see, but definitly I would go out to the porch to show these off!

                adorable and elegant. Wool keeps you cool in the summer as well as warm in winter. Great fabric for footwear as it doesn't make you sweat.

                I don't quite understand the function of these slippers. For warmth, there are cheaper, warmer slippers out there. For keeping your feet clean, there are cheaper, more attractive alternatives. The flower also looks like it would get in the way.

                I love the vibrant colors of poppies in general. I would buy but for the price I hope they hold their shape and aren't itchy on bare feet.

                Really, you're going to trip on your poppies and then have to send them to the cleaners? I think not.

                these are fantastic. i have made felt before and it is quite difficult to make a quality product in felt. It's all about the flower! Felt is warm and cosy! These are so dramatic and awesome-the bigger the better! i like attention getters!

                Cassie, UncommonGoods Community Moderator

                Thanks for the question, Nancy. These slippers are currently being considered in the adult sizes listed in the product story. The poppies are attached securely, so you won't have to worry about them flopping around (or tripping over them). Would you consider wearing these as an adult?
