More Information

The beauty of being a niche family owned business is the opportunity to be spontaneous without having to always be concerned with fashion and global trends.

So when our owner Roger had a family holiday enjoying the hustle and bustle of Moroccan souks a few years ago, he couldn’t help buying some traditional carpets to experiment with back in the workshop on his return. This Limited Edition style will not be repeated in this design so when they are gone they are gone!

ALL ABOUT THE 7033
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.
