My new house slippers from Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. I got them jus a few days before their even newer revolution. The material is woven from camel fur and the patterns are traditional. They are very warm and comfortable! Posted by Hello

Yes angel-a you are absolutely right, they are hand crafted.

Nice slippers. Rather more elaborate than mine, which are a blue corduroy. (Is that spelt right?)

Hey - link away!

Thanks Roger! I'll put it up in a bit!

Hi niki! Hope you had a blessed Easter! I love those slippers too; next time you are in Bishkek you should get a pair. They're really comfortable also!

Julie, syl these slippers would be just great. We have a custom here that everybody slips off their street shoes after they come in and are provided with slippers while they are in our homes. It is a neat custom (literally and figuratively). Now all I have to do is figure out how to keep the cat from "baptizing" spare slippers in the dead of the night!
