Here at Draper of Glastonbury, we produce the very best mens luxury slippers available. Each and every pair that we produce are handmade from start to finish and takes around four weeks to make. We have been manufacturing luxury slippers for men in our own factory in Somerset since 1937, and the company is still owned and run by the same family. We are now the oldest makers of sheepskin and leather slippers in the UK, and this level of experience is what makes our slippers the most luxurious in the world. We export our mens luxurious slippers worldwide to the finest stores and directly to the public online too.
Our mens luxury slippers UK are handcrafted from premium British sheepskins, suedes, and leathers, which are sourced from British tanneries. When the raw materials arrive at our factory, they are sorted into batches by colour, shade, thickness, and quality. Only the best quality materials make it into our slippers, the rest are rejected and sent back. Our experienced cutters can observe tick marks, scars, and creases, and are trained to avoid the flaws in the skins so that we make the finest slippers. Once the winter mens luxury slippers are cut, they are passed onto our making room, where they are stitched together by expert machinists who have spent most of their working lives training to stitch slippers together in our factory. Each individual stitch will be exactly the same distance from one another, making the final product absolutely perfect in every way. Our slippers are double stitched, to ensure they never come apart and are extremely durable and hard wearing.
Once the mens luxury leather slippers are stitched together, they are at this point inside out. They now need to be passed onto the ‘making’ team, who hand turn the slippers and put them onto lasts. This is an extremely skilful process, which requires strong hands. They will put the heel in place, insole for comfort, and sheepskin insole on top of that also. They will put the slippers onto a last, and each style and each size has its own individual last, which ensures the perfect fitting every time.
Different mens luxury house slippers have a different width fitting, so we can always produce a pair to fit your requirements. Finally, the slippers are passed onto our finishing department, where the suede is brushed clean, the leathers are wiped and polished, and the loose threads cut off. Any slipper that is not up to standard at this stage is rejected. The slippers are packaged up into our shoe boxes, using luxury tissue paper to keep them safe, and we include a small booklet which gives you more information about cleaning and the company as a whole.
