This year getting our slipper socks from Afghanistan has been quite a challenge. We managed to get a shipment across the border, by camel train, into Pakistan a few days before the Taliban took over. Then trying to get cargo out of Pakistan was a nightmare due to there being a shortage of shipping containers. The good news is that they have finally arrived!
They are hand knitted by women who have been widowed in the conflict, buying our slipper socks really helps them earn an income and rebuild their lives. Things have changed quite a bit under the new regime and many of the women who make our slipper socks have been internally displaced, so it could be a while until we get any more shipments from Afghanistan.
Our Slipper Socks are the perfect winter alternative to cold feet! They are very versatile, they can be worn around the house as slippers or in your wellies as socks! They have a leather sole on them which is soft but handwearing on carpets and solid floors.
They come in four sizes from small to extra large, A small size is around UK size 2- 4, medium UK size 5 - 7, large UK size 8 - 10, XL UK size 11+.
As they are handmade patterns and colour do vary! If you have a preference for colours please choose from bright Colours or Subdued colours or send us an email with your preferences. We will send you the best match from our stock.
