High quality starts with the selection of the basic material. There are countless wool qualities, but only the finest manage it into the GIESSWEIN production.
Wool is not an artificially manufactured standard, but as unique as nature itself. That's why it takes years of experience of our employees to get wool into shape.
With this know-how, we have become Europe's largest producer of 100% virgin wool clothing.
In order for wool to become a high-performance material, various complex production stages have to be run through.
The processing of wool takes a lot of time than the production of conventional textiles. This process is more complex, but you get a much more functional product.
We are constantly researching new production methods to make our raw materials even softer and always of higher quality.
We have found a way to sustainably produce our products. We pay particular attention to particularly resource-saving production methods.
The highlights of our sustainable production are:
- 0% scraps
- up to 90% recycled water in production
- 100% use of renewable resources
Our slippers are cut according to the usual shoe sizes. Please order slippers according to your normal shoe size. If you already own a matching Giesswein slipper, please order according to this size. Please note that boiled wool slippers will expand slightly over time.
How do I measure correctly?
Take a piece of paper and a pen. Step on the sheet of paper with your foot and mark the heel and tip of your toe with your pen. Do the same with the second foot. Feet are rarely exactly the same length. If you already know the longer foot, it is sufficient to measure its length. Determine length in cm. Please use the ruler to determine the length in cm. The tables below translate the sole length into all common sizes.
