One of the oldest shoe manufacturing techniques is the turn slipper, some say dating back to the 14th century.
Made from 2 pieces of material stitched together and made inside out, before being ‘turned’ to disguise the closed line to the inside of the shoe.
Turn slippers have long been part of Norfolk shoemaking history, introduced to the county by the large group of ‘Strangers’ that settled here in the 16th Century, specialising in weaving and shoemaking.
Our Black Deerskin Monk slippers are a ready to wear style, so please expect one week for delivery. Any customised styles, however, are subject to six weeks delivery and are not eligible for refund.
