'Helen made her first pair of slippers for her young son in the winter of 1977, they had a hand cut sheepskin sole and a crocheted upper made with hand spun raw wool.
Though our company has expanded, employing more than thirty local artisans and support staff, we are still independently owned and operated and our premises remain in North Vancouver, ensuring product quality and support of the local community. The slippers too remain largely the same; they are still hand crocheted and hand dyed in small lots, insuring each pair is one of a kind.
Our tagline reads, Return Home, we chose this to remind ourselves of what is important and the core values that are at the heart of Padraig Cottage Ind.'
we adore these adorable handmade slippers and have been waiting a while to get them in...available in store for babes 3 months old, 1 year old and 2 years old.

a client once told us, 'take care of your feet, they've got to carry you through your lifetime', good point.
