Wherever you are, your Woolenstocks will happily tuck themselves under the bed and make themselves at home. They’ll watch box sets with you on a lazy Sunday morning. They’ll welcome you home when you’ve been running in the rain. They’ll make your friends curious – where could such happy slippers come from?
It’s a good question. Where did your Woolenstocks come from?
In the mountains of Asia, felt slippers have given comfort to nomads for generations. Nomadic sheep herders sheltered in felt yurts, the walls of wool protecting them from the fierce mountain winds. At the end of the day, families would gather to tell epic stories of the warrior, Manas and make music on the komuz, a fretless string instrument shaped from a single piece of wood.
Now, your slippers are embroidered with love in Kyrgyzstan’s capital, Bishkek, under the shadow of the Tien Shan mountains. Weaving ancient traditions, mystical stories and contemporary comfort for a completely unique style.
