Beautiful handmade, entirely organic, natural rush slippers woven in small quantities and airy underfoot.
Handmade rush slippers are traditional to many cultures. These hand-crafted summer slippers are produced for us in Transylvania in small quantities entirely from organic rushes harvested earlier in the year. The fine rushes (called reed mace in the UK, cattail in the US) are smooth and springy. Wearing them, you realise how good it feels to tread on that kind of texture and natural material. We also love the lingering hay-like scent. After just one hour they start to soften slightly, becoming more comfortable, and adapt to the shape of your feet. If any reed end sticks out slightly, simply pinch it off.
Dependent on availability, we offer sizes 37 / 38 / 39 / 40
We are currently offering a minimal simple design online though from time to time we have pairs with additional woven pattern detailing.
Feather-light, the rush slippers are for indoor use as house shoes though we know that people also find them useful beside the swimming pool or on hot sand beaches. If the slippers get damp or splashed in the bathroom, no problem - the rush material grows beside water after all and can simply be allowed to dry out.
