More Information

Named after Queen Victoria’s consort, Prince Albert (who famously commissioned them to wear inside their many royal residences), Albert slippers today are loved by men and women alike, with all our styles unisex and available to order on two different last shapes.

For those who prefer to make a statement then our hand embroidered slippers are for you. All of our embroidery is stitched by hand, specialising in the ancient craft of Gold Work.

Our Black Velvet Albert Slippers with Embroidered Rampant Lion is a ready to wear style, so please expect one week for delivery. Any customised styles, however, are subject to eight weeks delivery and are not eligible for refund.  


Our most popular style is the 7033. A traditional pattern cut with a high square tongue, suitable for both the P and K last. The 7033 has a regal look and feel to the shape, classically suited to velvet uppers, fabric binding and quilt lining. All our patterns are clicked by hand before embarking on their journey around the workshop being handmade into our signature velvet Albert slippers.
