Responsible Bedroom Slippers
The Chilote House Shoe is Eco and Ethically Principled

By: Amelia Roblin (Superstar) Sep 6, 11

Consumers are finally growing interest in the origins of their products once again, and along with the curiosity comes compassion. The Chilote House Shoe is a brilliant example of a guilt-free item made in ways that aid communities and avoid offending the Earth.

Designer Stiven Kerestegian has come up with this cultural and eco-conscious footwear concept that can be made by local artisans and craftspeople from Chilean Patagonia. The project would employ people in need of work and pay, and create a fair trade business with spas, hotels and private customers.

Organic materials such as sheep’s wool and up-cycled salmon leather compose the soft moccasins. The warm woven booties are stitched together with a natural twine to create a cozy breathable sock. What’s not to love about the homespun Chilote House Shoe?
