Wooppers means woolen slippers

Felt slippers, boiled wool slippers, 100% pure wool clogs, soft, warm, breathable and most hygienic house shoes.
A handmade project by Chryssa Adrakta.

Welcome to our Wooppers House!

Here we take fine lamb’s or merino wool and we turn it into the coziest house slippers for women, men and kids. We rub the wool with organic soap and water until microscopic barbs on the wool’s surface hook together forming the material; felt. We then mold this felt carefully around  shoe lasts and work it further, until its transformation into a unique pair of woolen slippers without any seams or stitches. This is exactly the practice of an ancient craft, which we use again in our own way to create a contemporary object for everyday use. With their bold or natural colors and minimalist aesthetic Wooppers felted slippers are designed to give you visual, tactile and ‘felt’ pleasure.

Beautiful to look at and thoroughly luxurious, Wooppers felted slippers will keep your feet warm in the comfort of your own home.

Wooppers is Chryssa Adrakta’s latest project and is based on the belief that objects we use in daily life have a certain effect on our mood. It is a blessing in life to feel comfortable and cherished at home and to enjoy simple pleasures. Wearing Wooppers is one such pleasure.

Remove the “len” from woolen and the “sli” from the word slippers and there you have it; Wooppers a short word which contains all the goodness of wearing wool and all the comfort a house shoe can give.

Wooppers is Trade Mark registered.
