Padraig Cottage

Padraig slippers are hand made in Canada.

Helen made her first pair of slippers for her young son in the winter of 1977.  The slipper had a hand cut sheepskin sole and a crocheted upper made with hand spun raw wool. In a few short years this first design would become known as the “Original Padraig Slipper”. Since Helen started selling her crafts in local markets, the slipper line and the company have grown and evolved. The slippers now come in numerous colour designs and styles.

Padraig employs more than thirty local artisans and support staff, is still independently owned and operated and their premises remain in North Vancouver; ensuring product quality and support to the local community. The slippers too remain largely the same; they are still hand crocheted and hand dyed in small lots, insuring each pair is one of a kind.
