Manufacturing

Felt boots are manufactured by hand from pure lamb wool, which is the best material for making felt boots. The whole manufacturing process is based on the felting capacity of wool.

"The felting process is like a manipulated chaos, which is based on the fact that the wool fibres become tangled. The felter tries to influence the process with machinery ensuring that the tangling of fibres progresses in the desired way."

At the beginning, the slab of a felt boot is almost two times larger than the final intended product. The slab is felted until the required thickness and compactness has been achieved. At the end, the felt slab is moulded on a last and left to dry. During this phase, the felt is stretched into the desired form. Unlike other footwear, felt boots may shrink during their use as a result of the manufacturing process.
