Luxury alpaca slippers and handmade footwear
Based in Brooklyn, Ariana Bohling is a collection of distinctive footwear for the modern nomad. Ariana began by creating a delicately braided sandal produced in her studio in Brooklyn. She has since expanded production into Peru and Asia to create quality handmade products by local artisans in small workshops.
The collection has gained notoriety for its luxury Alpaca Fur Slippers, which are ethically sourced and produced by master Peruvian craftspeople. The alpaca fur is cruelty-free, no alpacas are killed to obtain it, and it keeps your feet warm and comfy given the unique quality of the fur to be both insulating and breathable.
The slippers also feature dense foam padding for cushioning and support, which will mold to your foot as you wear to create a custom fit slipper. Additionally, there is a suede sole for durability (but we don’t advise wearing them outside as hard as it will be to take them off!).
Why I chose it
The alpaca slippers are the ultimate house shoe. You won’t want to take off these fuzzy creations. I also felt that we could all use a little fun and whimsy in our lives given everything that’s going on in the world. If you have to staycation or work from home, at least these slippers can bring a bit of joy to your day.
