How it all Began
The story of Woolenstocks begins in the Himalayas. Tired from his travels and trekking, a weary sheepherder named Woogoo needed to rest his blistered feet. During his travels, he came across a tribe dancing and celebrating in their village. He quickly noticed each dancer wore a pair of beautiful slippers. In fact, they were the most colourful slippers Woogoo had ever seen!
When the tribe’s skilled artisans saw Woogoo’s exhausted and weary feet, they handmade a unique pair of felt slippers to ease his pain. The slippers brought him instant comfort. Soon he was dancing to celebrate with his newfound friends. As Woogoo left the tribe to continue on his journey, he decided their extraordinary handmade designs needed to be shared with the world. He made it his personal mission to help bring their unique designs to light, and thus the birth of Woolenstocks.
Today, Woolenstocks mingles the time-honoured traditions of Himalayian craftsmanship with unique stories from all over the world. Every pair is crafted with love, time and skills to provide you comfort and restore your energy – so that like Woogoo, you too will be ready to dance once again.
Supporting Female Artisans Around the World
We are proud to support local factories in remote regions to empower their growth and development. In return, these factories hire all female artisans, empowering them to provide valuable income for their families to find long-term solutions to poverty. This income not only offers food and education to their family but also strengthens their voice so they can speak out against the injustices they face.
At Woolenstocks, we’re committed to empowering women and children around the world. We believe we can make a difference one stitch, one pair of slippers, and one family at a time.
