When when we found a stash of wonderful purple leather seconds we were understandably very impatient to create our next batch of POLINs. As always, we did our tests to check the quality of the finish and all seemed fine. However, having test-worn a pair for 2-3 weeks we find the luscious purple finish is inclined to wear off quite quickly around areas of contact and creasing, revealing the underlying blue leather. There is no colour transfer and we feel that this only adds to their allure. As we are all about making use of waste – and avoiding any further waste – we’ve decided this gleaming batch should not be shelved... we hope you agree.
Special batch price £50 / No returns accepted for loss of metallic finish
POLIN is our slip-on model – perfect for keeping your feet comfortable all year round. They are finished with our trademark striped trim and have light, hard-wearing textured soles. The sheepskin used for POLIN's slipper inners may vary in colour and texture from the images shown as we use what suitable offcuts and seconds we can source when creating them.
POLIN BRAZILIAN PURPLE are limited edition slippers – meaning the amount of sheepskin or leather waste we can source in a particular style or colour determines the number of pairs we produce per batch. Everything is designed so even the smallest of offcuts can be utilised during our production process.
