Each Ruby+ Ed slipper takes over 3 hours to manufacture, (’create’ as we like to think) in comparison to the 1 hour high street slippers take to make.
We have been designing slippers for over 40 years. This means that the collective experience and knowledge in design and manufacture is fed into every single slipper in our collection, we know which materials will work and which won’t and we take exceptional care in ensuring that each slipper meets our exacting requirements. We’re often asked why our slippers are expensive relative to other slippers.
We spend 2-15 days developing the initial and reworked design, hand making initial prototypes or parts, specification, technical review, production control and quality checking for every single product in the collection.
Each slipper uses materials exclusively developed for us, dyed to our colour standards or materials that are sourced and selected by us.
OVER 1000 ORIGINAL SLIPPERS
We have an archive of over 1000 original slippers from our collections over the years and also some wacky development samples that are entirely one of a kind world exclusives. We regularly draw upon this archive for colour material and shape inspiration.
HIGH GRADE FABRIC
We use a higher grade of fabric than slippers found on the high street, this means the materials is functionally or aesthetically superior to competing styles by our many competitors and therefore more expensive.
We produce limited edition, small production runs not mass produced runs that allow larger businesses to offer better prices for generic products.
When you buy a Ruby + Ed slipper, you are buying exclusivity, exceptional design, attention to detail and a little part of our history as every year there are new designs.
ONLY BRAND IN THE WORLD
We are the only brand in the world that design and develop such a comprehensive collection of new individually designed slippers every season.
