"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 Wool Felted Poppy Slippers:

I received these as a gift for my birthday. I think they are super cute, but they don't fit properly, so I haven't been able to wear them. I have tried them on and they dont seem very plush and comfy. They seem to run a full size small because I have the Large, and I usually wear a size 9 but my feet hang out.

    In a house with perpetually cold floors, these are a great help. They can't be worn outside because there are no actual soles, but they are great around the house all winter.

    Comments about Wool Felted Poppy Slippers:

    I purchased these for my Grandma for Christmas. She called me- giggling. She loved them. In addition to the cute flower design, she commented on how soft they were and that they fit perfectly! I am thinking I may need a pair of these super cute slippers for myself!

          These were beautiful and warm, but I thought a size small would work for a size 6.5 shoe and it was too small.
