With no added embroidery or embellishments our signature velvet Albert slippers are Plain in name only. Available in nine sumptuous colours, our quality velvet is the ideal material to make luxury slippers for understated elegance.

Our Black Velvet Plain Albert slippers are a ready to wear style, so please expect one week for delivery. Any customised styles, however, will take up to eight weeks for 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.
