Padraig Cottage made its first pair of slippers in 1977. This pair, with its sheepskin sole and crocheted upper made from hand-spun wool, is origin of the brand's slippers. The company, based in Vancouver, employs more than 30 local artisans. She ensures the quality of the products and the support of the local community. The slippers are hand crocheted and hand dyed in small batches. So each pair is unique.
