Mongolian Camel Wool Slippers

45.00 AUD

Adventuring to Mongolia, that deliciously immense and empty land squeezed between China and Russia, shifted something inside me. This land – that created warriors so fierce they conquered the largest land empire the world has ever known, and that still sees 40 per cent of its population living as tough nomadic shepherds in gers year-round despite freezing winters – had me re-evaluating how I lived my life, and reminded me how small we all really are. I returned home humbled, but also filled up, reinvigorated and full of tales and inspirations to share with the world.


I’m reminded of all of this, and of the sweet local craftswomen I purchased them from, when I wear my embroidered Mongolian camel wool slippers each day. And I know some of that feeling will transfer to you too when you slip your feet into them on a chilly winter’s eve.
