The Felt Story

Our main reason for travelling to Mongolia was a visit to esgii’s felt slipper producers, where we were introduced to the fascinating world of turning a ‘sheep coat’ into a comfortable pair of slippers. We were lucky to witness almost all of the different stages of the production process—except, unfortunately, the sheep-shearing.

Here, you can see some of the production stages, with a collection of images taken at producers Tova, Angel Felting and MIM: Made in Mongolia, along with some photos of sheep and woollen fleece.
