Slippers With a Story

Slippers With a Story

Gift-giving seems to be evolving, especially over the holidays.
Slippers With a Story
We are increasingly choosing to give the ones we love something that is meaningful or one-of-a-kind. Many of us look beyond the assembly line of short-lived trends towards what will have long-term impact: something well-made, that is well-earned, to be well-loved. The most interesting gifts always have a story.

Like a pair of Chuni slippers.

Chuni slippers are traditional, handmade house shoes, carefully crafted with natural materials like sheepskin or leather. Gender-neutral in styling, they have an old-world look and feel to them, evoking an ancient time and place.

Our new Brown Bear Chuni slippers are made by MerinoMood in the mountainous regions of the Kyrgyz Republic. Here, three generations have worked with local shepherds to select the finest sheepskins and wool from the peaks and valleys of the remote Tian Shan mountains. Once the suede shearling is chosen and cut, it is handcrafted, assembled and stitched into footwear and other apparel by seamstresses in a tailoring workshop, not mass-produced or factory made. This craftsmanship can be seen and felt in every slipper.

With a uniquely textured look achieved by treated reversed sheepskin, Chuni slippers have a suede outsole, heel and tab detail. They are accented with a centre seam along the vamp and generous stitch around the ankle, embellished at the side with the distinctive Brown Bear logo.

Chuni house shoes are fully lined with thick, plush merino shearling, which has naturally therapeutic properties. Sheepskin fleece is not only cozy and gentle to the touch, its fibres contain lanolin, to soothe and soften the skin. It is organically thermostatic, and can help improve circulation by regulating body temperature. Dense, but breathable, shearling allows feet to stay cool in the summer and keep warm in the winter.

Sheepskin is also hypoallergenic and anti-microbial, resistant to mould and and dust mites. It shapes to the foot over time, naturally wicking away moisture and circulating air, minimizing bacteria and odour.

Chuni slippers are made with the highest quality sheep hides, designed to bring comfort and ease for many years. As a gift to yourself or someone else, they tell the story of exceptional artisanship, durable materials, and wellness.
