Pecora della Roccia Tirolese House Shoes
From the Oldest Tyrolean Sheep Breed. With Cork Latex Footbed. Exclusively for Us.
The thick felt body made from a single piece of undyed wool for these house shoes is shaped in a special procedure to anatomically fit the cork foot bed. The wool comes from the Pecora della Roccia Tirolese or Tiroler Steinschaf, a breed of domestic sheep from the Alps. The cut edge of the house shoe is reinforced with a web trim. The durable sole is made from anti-slip EVA plastic. Only available from Manufactum.
If someone says “Patschen” in Austria, they’re most likely talking about their slippers. Ours come from Gottstein, in Imst, Austria. In 1926, the company started producing impeccable fulled felt. Down to the present day, Gottstein has the virgin wool fleece, softened in nothing less than pure mountain spring water, squeezed and beaten in shape on an original “hammer” fulling machine until the fleece is thick enough to be used for house-slippers of this kind of quality. Each slipper is made from a single section of the wool felt; hence, annoying cut edges do not occur in this type of manual production. Put on a last, the slippers get their final shape by dampening, pressing and careful drying. You may notice the slight bulge at the toe, a shape that makes walking particularly comfortable. The pure wool felt makes for balanced temperature conditions all year round.
