Lasso slippers

Made in Paris by a social enterprise providing work opportunities for people with special needs, the Lasso slippers, designed by Gaspard Tiné-Berès and Ruben Valensi, has now launched on Kickstarter.

Lasso is made from a single piece of wool-felt, a leather sole and a cotton lace. All materials are 100 % natural.

 

Simple to make, the pair of slippers comes flat-pack, with laces in five different colours. The slipper shape is created by lacing the edges of the felt together through pre-cut holes.

The Lasso campaign has been launched on Kickstarter on January 31 and almost 50% of its objective has already been raised. Help the Lasso team reach their funding goal and receive your own pair.

Love love love these, its very rare I see a new product I'd actually spend money on but these just make so much sense. Green felt with a leather lace would be even nicer.

I think they are lovely! My only regret is the unefficient cut-out. From the pictures I have seen, there is quite a lot of waste in the cutting.
I hope they get to this market we need all the help we can get to keep warm!
