Whether for the inside, outside, little ones and furry ones, Betterfelt ensures comfort beyond just the confines of your feet and home.
Our mission extends beyond better felt… we also want to better the world and honor the traditions and lives of our artisans. That’s why Betterfelt is committed to our status as a certified Fair Trade Importer. This title goes beyond the certification: the ownership of our production facility in coordination with our Nepalese partner ensures that all fair trade practices are overseen and followed through. While we acknowledge the higher production cost of our accreditation, we find ourselves more concerned with the experience and understanding of our employees and producers. We hope to improve the lives of those working with us one slipper at a time.
Good quality and design are always in fashion. Our products are multi-seasonal and crafted by hand, resulting in less waste and ensuring your feet are warm and dry no matter the time of year. Our unique felting process produces a strong, seamless shoe, and our soles simply add protection and a non-slip surface. Between our Danish design and Nepalese production, we feel confident putting our best foot forward – with slippers on, of course.
Your shoes aren’t just mass produced in a factory. Each product is uniquely created by Nepalese artisans, most of them women. Our mission has always been to work with our producers to ensure employment benefits that betters their wellness - things like paid holidays, fair maternity leave, extra salary during the annual Nepalese autumn festivals, and perhaps most importantly, salary equivalents to skilled male workers. We also contribute cash grants to the children of our employees to go toward their public education. In an effort to keep our staff educated too, we offer free English courses; ensuring that communication amongst all our employers is seamless and clear. We care about much more than just making your feet comfortable.
A cosy space for your cat to play with, sleep in/on and enjoy. As cats like to play, are drawn to small spaces and are big fans of wool felt (as many betterfelt slipper owners will tell you), our cat cave will be a hit with your feline friend.
There is no maintenance needed as it will air out when your cat is not in it. If desired, you can use a vacuum to rid it of pet hair.
As with all of our products, the cat cave is hand felted of 100% natural wool in our workshop in Nepal. All of our products are certified Fair Trade and making a purchase creates good jobs in Nepal. 1 cat cave creates approximately a 1/2 days’ work for one artisan in Kathmandu.
