From Raw Wool To Warm Slipper—esgii’s Felt Makers

This is a new video about esgii's felt slipper production in Mongolia. Last summer, owner Annelies Hendriks and I travelled to Mongolia to visit her suppliers, where I documented the various stages of the production process. Now these photos are used in this wonderful animation video by Alpaca Animations, with underlying music by Mongolian throat singing band Domog. I’m very happy with the result!

Also see my series The Felt Story, which tells the story of the wonderful makers and the fascinating production process of the esgii slippers.
