We have revived the long-forgotten old folk craftsmanship of hand-made felt boots. Now mainly,
it is lone and rare craftsmen who go in for that. Felt boots are a purely Russian invention, they
were manufactured for centuries in villages by our ancestors. It is a very labor-consuming trade,
that's why manual manufacturing has been replaced by machine method. Due to that, the volume
of production has increased, but quality has dropped.
So what is the difference between hand-made and machine-made felt boots?
The quality of felt boots we make is by far higher. What is the reason?
1. Our felt boots are very warm, as we use 100% pure sheep wool with no additions, that's why
you can wear them over a thin sock and your feet will stay as warm as inside a stove.
2. Our felt boots practically don't shrink. You can easily walk over puddles in them, after drying
they won't shrink a single centimeter, whereas machine made boots will shrink by three sizes.
3. As it is known, sheep wool may be of various colors: white, grey. brown. We sort that wool
out, that's why we produce white, grey and brown boots. But, according to the customer's wish,
we can dye boots practically in any color .
4. As it is known people have different feet, including non-standard ones, especially above the
ankle, so we accept individual orders.
We also make "Gypsy" felt boots, so called behind-the knee with elongated shaft.
For home, especially those who have cold floors, we make slippers out of felt made from 100%
pure sheep wool. They have no analogues.
