My name is Antti. Felts Merino shoes came from a need. My young friend’s feet were suffering from her skin.
From my work, I have knowledge of the health benefits of wools and different fabrics and I set to make antibacterial shoes for my friend to use when inside of the home. I knew that I had to use Merino wool for its unmatched breathability and similarly, I needed nettle fabric to be the chosen sole that it is a ¨hollow fibre¨ and shares the same breathing properties as Merino wool. After seeing how this idea helped my friend’s skin, I understood that I had a product that had a significant health benefit and it would be a possible help for many. Two years into the project now, I feel that we have perfected Felts* The best possible in-house shoes*. I am doing this with the most talented artisans in Nepal. I hope that all our conscious efforts help to make the world a better place.
