Thinking about warming up those feet without involving mainly leather? Oveja Llena has a new line of boots, slippers and hats made from natural wool felt. Take a closer look to the many models inside.
First introduced by TreeHugger a few months ago with its former name Oveja Verde, this Argentine design brand makes artisan products with natural wool felt without dies.
Their latest work is this cute line of boots, slippers and hats perfect for winter. The models are differentiated by the different drawings embroidered by hand.
The line of footwear is mainly produced with wool felt, though the soles of the shoes are made with bonded leather and another leather material. Even if they are still a better choice from leather boots, we'd love to see these 100% leather-free.
Even though the firm is based in Buenos Aires, they have begun production and are eager to expand. So if you're interested in the products contact them though their website.
Remember wool felt is considered an environmentally friendly material because it's made from 100% wool, making it biodegradable and sustainable. That is, of course, if the wool is sourced from farms that have ethical treatment towards sheep and if no chemical materials are aded in the process of making the felt.
