Your little one may not be able to walk yet, but he or she can still stand a little taller in these charming giraffe booties, handcrafted from eco-friendly felted wool by Kyrgyz artisans.

The booties are handcrafted in small batches, starting from natural wool, which is dyed, spun and felted, before being cut and stitched into adorable giraffe details.

These are part of our Continental Collection, featuring sweet, handcrafted animal booties representing each continent. Handmade in Kyrgyzstan.



Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

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.

Adorable and Soft

Shoes fit great on the little one and are comfy. The child isn't walking yet, so they haven't really dealt with any real action, but they fit snuggly and look great!

Adorable!!!!

We bought these for a friend that takes care of our boys (two semi-behaved Great Danes!)...she is expecting and we truly love her and all she does for our little family. As animals lovers, we thought these we perfect to give her and their new bundle of joy from "the boys" (because really? If they could buy her something they would!!) I think she loved them and I'm sure anything from uncommon goods is just that...uncommon! I love giving gifts that are unique and thoughtful so I always start here!

Not as pictured

The felt is thick and of high-quality. The colors are not vibrant. Apparently the dye is different from the photo. Loose, dark felt hairs covered the yellow. The eye lids were impossibly crumpled. The way they cover the eye makes them look scary, not cute. The construction of the neck will make it impossible to get on a baby's feet, and they were huge! Small opening, huge booties. From top of ear to the sole, they were 6 inches tall. From front to back on the bottom, they were 5 inches long. They were shipped unstuffed, so they are bent over under the eye and won't straighten up. I'm going to stuff them full of tissue and use them as decorations in a giraffe-themed nursery after I figure out how to clean off the excess black felt. Baby won't ever be able to wear these. I bought them because my daughter-in-law collects giraffes and wanted to do her nursery with them. Such a disappointment.

Sadly did not fit.

I purchased these as a Christmas gift for my 5 1/2 month old granddaughter. Several family members attempted to get these on her with and without socks. Even though the length of the bootie seemed the right size, we were unable to insert her foot into the bootie.

when I saw these booties, I really struggled to decide which design to choose. They were all so cute. Wish they came in a smaller size.

Didn't live up to expectations

Disappointed that color not as vibrant as in photo. And felt itself contained some flaws.

cute slipper, too tight.

Loved these colorful, cute slippers which are just as pictured! However, the opening for babies foot is so tight that there is no way to get the foot into the slipper. Disappointed I have to return them for that reason, but want buyers to be aware of this possibility.
