Rudels Luxury Slippers are hand made in England using traditional techniques and only the very finest British wool and sheepskin. British wool is arguably the finest in the world. Due to our climate, the 60 plus sustainable varieties have distinctive structures and feels.
This gives them an advantage over other wools from around the world. Wool is a excellent insulator & sheepskin is a natural thermostat which retains heat and keeps your feet at their optimum temperature reducing perspiration to a minimum.
Our Classics are made using sustainable raw wool which is sourced only in the British Isles and then traditionally woven into our Luxury felt, this process takes place as it has for hundreds of years in the north of England within a historic textile mill, which is a member of Woolmark & which proudly carries the Royal Warrant, awarded for supplying furnishing fabrics to Her Majesty the Queen.
Our Beautiful woollen felt is then sent to the southwest of England to our manufacturing partner, A traditional Slipper factory. Which use a unique method of hand turning the slipper inside out to handcraft our Luxury Classics.
"A timeless handcrafted luxurious slipper made in England for the modern lifestyle."
Quality in Craftsmanship
Rudels Luxury Slippers, part of The British Wool Association, Campaign for Wool, associate member of the British Footwear Association & Make it British, was launched in 2016 by founder Bradley Rudelhoff with business partners Neelaim & Sebastian Rudelhoff, who identified a gap in the market for luxury slippers for men & women. Combining his knowledge of made to measure and ready to wear experience the result is a range of beautiful luxury slippers, Made in England.
Bradley Rudelhoff, owner of Rudels Luxury Slippers Ltd, strives to work with the very best British suppliers, "this is crucially important to us".
With the sustainability of luxury british wool, quality in traditional craftsmanship & a eye for colour balance we feel this makes a time less luxurious slipper made for the modern lifestyle.
Our Men’s Slippers are unique as we can trace our history of Woolen Felt from Farmer & Breed to our Luxury Slippers which is a very important part of our sustainable product & business.
We use Lustre Sheep which consists of Cotswold, Lincoln Longwool & Bluefaced Leicester.
Hill which consists of Beulah, Derbyshire Gritstone & North Country Cheviot.
The last and a favourite is Mountain with Breeds such as Swaledale, Welsh Mountain & Blackface.
With these factors & ethos in place we feel this makes our Slippers one of a kind.
