BESPOKE WOMEN’S VALENKI FELT BOOTS
Entwined Fibres is a brand of Restituo based in Christchurch, New Zealand, owned by Jenna Milesi, who creates beautiful handmade felt slippers, boots and shoes for around the home and for days out and about.
Each pair of felt boots is handcrafted to your foot size and colour choices selected from 100% New Zealand Corriedale wool sourced locally within a 1.5-hour drive from where they are made at Restituo’s workshop and studio.
These felt boots are unlike anything else you’ve ever seen handcrafted in New Zealand. The techniques used to create these beautiful felt slippers combine Russian, Ukrainian, Nordic, and Scandinavian techniques and the maker’s own techniques are added to the mix.
Once the 100% New Zealand wool boots have been created, the maker hand-cuts a 1.8mm rubber sole from Italian rubber, secures it in place with premium German glue designed for shoes, and secures the edges with premium Brazilian waxed thread. Or if you want a thicker shoe-style rubber sole (as pictured, this can be added for an additional charge).
Each pair of boots stands approximately 25cm from the ground.
We will be in touch if we have any queries regarding the information added when placing your order.
DISCLAIMER: Pictures of slippers on the left are examples of what you will be receiving. However, the item you receive will be based on the options you have selected when purchasing this product.
Since each pair of slippers is entirely custom-made from scratch, there is a lead time of 5-6 weeks lead time. See additional terms and conditions.
*Terms & Conditions:
Some coloured wool may be out of stock, and waiting times for those may be longer due to supply chain issues. Waiting times for custom-made slippers may be longer than stated due to supply chain timeframes/changing alert/traffic light levels. Slippers purchased will be sent once the wool has arrived and the slippers are made.
OLD SCHOOL LAYBUY ORDERS:
If you are paying by lay buy, then the item will be sent to you only once the final payment is received. Old school lay buy is available for this product - you may choose between 4 or 6 weeks to pay.
