Some say that when a person makes something with their own hands, it inherits a bit of their soul. You could hardly say the same about the majority of presently mass-produced items. With factory manufacturing being the unconditional leader in a current mass consumption world, these slivers of people’s souls become less and less frequent visitors. The recent trend to buy goods that come in smaller quantities, but with more attention from a person, might return the times, when every item was created with care. Even if a tiny fraction of it. The Haflinger brand, however, manages to combine handcraft with large numbers.
For more than 50 years Haflinger has been bringing people joy in the form of cozy woolen slippers and clogs. Exceptional quality and outstanding craftsmanship have made this brand beloved by millions of people around the world. Haflinger remains a family-owned business, with the founder’s grandson as its current manager.
What makes Haflinger slippers and clogs so special? One way to answer this question is to highlight the production process and materials used. Haflinger footwear is made from natural materials of the highest quality: 100% wool, cork-latex, and vegetable-tanned leather. The love for nature made this brand widely recognized by all active and eco-friendly lifestyle pursuers.
The featured product of the brand, these slippers have made their way into millions of homes conquering millions of hearts along the way. There is a wide variety of features that this footwear can boast: low and moderate arch support; removable and non-removable insoles; molded wool; and structured felted wool uppers. They are all different, yet are all united by an anatomically designed footbed and great love put in every pair. Many of those come in unisex variants, but there are Haflinger slippers for women, as well as Haflinger slippers for men that are tailored to fit everyone’s feet.
By taking the traditional wooden form and making it wool or leather, Haflinger introduced another type of footwear that rapidly became popular. Thicker cork footbeds allow clogs to retain warmth in winter and be breathable in summer. Halflinger wool clogs are the most widely-known variant, though materials vary from sheepskin to tanned leather. We have Haflinger womens clogs as well as clogs for men, but their design is versatile enough for everyone to wear.
