Kyrgies are slippers that help refresh your feet, promoting circulation and feeling when you get home from work, from a run, from yoga class, or from running errands. When you get in the door and get your shoes off, put on your kyrgies and bring your feet back to life.
In Scandinavia, Japan, Thailand, and elsewhere around the world, people remove their shoes and put on slippers when they enter a home. But in the United States, we tend to wear shoes in the house. Skipping this cherished ritual means tracking in dirt – and rushing through the physical and mental transition from the stress of the outside world to the coziness of home. A home is a sanctuary. We believe there is an untapped wellspring of well-being in the simple act of removing our outside shoes and slipping into natural indoor footwear.
Wool breathes, so that your feet don’t sweat like they do in synthetic materials. It has moisture wicking properties, helping to dry feet fresh from a long run, ski, or trip to the gym. The texture of Kyrgies is like walking in a grassy meadow, promoting circulation and feeling. Kyrgies are the perfect product for anyone who wants to take good care of their feet.
The Kyrgies vision of coziness isn’t just about physical comfort; it’s about peace of mind. Kyrgies are hand-felted and produced by artisan women paid a living wage in a woman-run arts collective in Kyrgyzstan. The ancient nomadic tradition of wet felting is thousands of years old and the women of Kyrgyzstan are among the finest felters in the world. This soft but strong material has made people cozy along the silk road for literally thousands of years. It plays as well in your living room as it does in the Tai Shan Mountains of Kyrgyzstan, where wool felt is a necessity for staying warm and dry.
