My handmade felt slippers from Lithuania give reference to our history with wool and to our love for design and comfort. They are made of natural, organic wool decorated with textures, dyed wool, and other embellishments. We have a wide range of all natural designs as well. The slippers shown here are just a sampling of what is available in my shop on Etsy. Make sure to explore the whole shop when you get there.
Felt is a perfect material for footwear. It is extremely wear proof and warm. When you put them on, you won’t want to take the slippers off. They will definitely make a part of your home outfit.
My life as a feltmaker began when I became a mom
I fell in love with felt in 2008 when my first son turned 3 months old. The love grew bigger and bigger with every little thing I used to felt, with every piece of art I found in books and magazines. Before that I worked as an architect in a small company, later I understood I really need more freedom in my occupation, I wanted to see my children growing. I wanted to do what I really loved to. This was working with textile. This was felting.
My very first felt craft was a pair of red slippers for myself: much better than I could have imagined. Afterwards there was a bag with flying little butterflies, slippers for my family and handbags for friends. Step by step I discovered more and more about this old and amazing craft.
We live near a forest and a lake surrounded by wild meadows in summer and magnificent snowdrifts in wintertime with only a few neighbours in the distance.
I work at home. In the midst of beautiful nature I feel so free and creative. I can’t imagine myself working alone. Kids, my little assistants, are running around and are always willing to advise me on the selection of colours. My husband is also there with his free sense of art and brilliant ideas. He is my number one quality controller. I love working at home where I can feel free and comfortable.
So this is my life.
