The Italian Slipper Co
Handmade Velvet Venetian Slipper-Lilac
The Venetian or Furlane Slipper was born in the post-war era, favoured by Gondoliers as their soft soles did not scratch the wood on the bottom of their boats and were comfortable enough to wear standing up all day. Each slipper is hand-stitched together using a waxed thread in the traditional fashion. To avoid the use of glue, the rubber sole is also hand stitched for durability, breathability, and comfort. We love the chic simplicity of these beautiful slippers, encapsulating a European conception of comfortable dressing for the Australian summer.
We've carefully selected a range of seasonal and staple colours from the Italian Slipper Co to pair back with our latest collections from Marle, APT, and Sika.
Available here in purple lilac.
