Focus On: Velvet Slippers
12 Nov 2015
There are times when the humble slipper just won't do. When only velvet, hand-made slippers will suffice - especially ones with your initials embroidered in fine gold thread. Never felt that way? Neither had we, until we received a pair embroidered with our own initials. This luxury gift suddenly felt like something we just couldn't do without. Granted, they make quite a decadent gift - but for someone special they really do fit the bill. The traditional men's velvet slippers and house shoes we sell here at Oliver Brown are hand-made in England, with a satin quilt lining and a leather sole and heel. They're expertly cut and lasted by hand using traditional techniques. Plus, with the option to personalise them with embroidery, each pair will truly be one-of-a-kind. We offer initial embroidery with up to four letters - either in gold or silver thread. Or you can choose from a wide range of motifs, from martini glasses to peacocks and lions. We also offer a more bespoke service if you have your own crest or motif you'd like to see adorning your slippers. Just ask! Take a look at our full velvet slippers collection for inspiration, or read more about our velvet slippers in a previous blog post: In Detail: Velvet Evening Slippers. So, will they be making it on to your Christmas wish-list? It's time to start dropping hints...
