6006 Red Albert
Our Products Ready To Wear Slippers


Fosters velvet slippers are fitted with a leather sole and can be worn outside.

Not all slippers age gracefully! Ours are made on a unique last which we think gives a much more refined look, and our top quality cotton velvet keeps its shape well.

A slipper should be properly fitted just like a shoe, so if you are buying for a friend or relative we can provide a sample to try on or alternatively a gift voucher is a very acceptable solution. There is a wide combination of velvets and satin linings available, so do review our swatch book for examples.

There is no limit to the originality -and amusement-
that can be created with a hand-woven medallion
on a velvet Albert slipper.  You can choose from
a wide range of examples from our pattern book, 
or alternatively make up your own design.

If you use your own material, the cloth must not stretch.
Tapestry or needlework are excellent in this regard!

Price: Plain Albert: £235 including UK VAT at 20%

Price with medallion: From £295 depending on design.
