My name is Gaspard Tiné-Berès, I'm a product designer graduated from royal college of Art in London, you can see my work here

I've designed these slippers one year ago and I would like to put them in the market for next winter. I've already invested in the tools, and set a team of partners and suppliers; the felt is 100% pure wool felt made in Germany, the laces are made in France and the shoes itself will be made in a social workshop next to Paris. As you can see it's all ready to go, I just need some little help to buy the first roll of material and get me starting.

What I Need & What You Get

I need 7500$ to pay for the wool felt, the leather, the man-work and the packaging, 7500$ should be enough to make the first 500 pairs.

If you buy a pair now you will get the limited first edition which will be specially numbered and signed.

The Impact

The slippers will be made by a social enterprise based next to Paris which hires handicapped people. Getting involved in this project would help them and me running on a sustainable business.

Other ways you Can Help

If you can't contribute or you already have too many pairs of slippers you can still talk about it to your friends!
