Artful Hand-Knitted Slippers by Visually and Hearing Impaired Crafters

An Archive of Past Hand-Knitted Slippers!

These hand-crafted slippers are skillfully created by individuals in Japan who experience both visual and auditory impairments, facing challenges in seeing and hearing. Despite these obstacles, they skillfully fashion exquisite hand-knitted slippers relying on their heightened sense of touch.

Producing these items on a large scale isn't feasible; thus, they are meticulously crafted in limited and irregular quantities. However, the proceeds generated from the sale of these slippers contribute to their efforts in empowering people with disabilities, aiding in their personal development, and supporting their wages.

Crafted from unique materials, including shiny and vibrant vinyl instead of the more common cotton, these slippers present a challenging task for hand-knitting. Yet, their remarkable skills enable them to overcome these challenges and produce remarkable pieces of artistry.

Reviews

Each pair of slippers has its own cultural background. We hope you will enjoy our Japanese-style slippers! We believe slipper can be a bridge to the peace  (= “Heiwa”).
