Cozy up to a Satch and Sol Slippers Review and Giveaway!

School has started, there is a crispness in the air announcing winter's progress! It is autumn's chill that has us yearning for the warmth and comfort of a crackling fire, a well-worn sweater, and a cozy pair of slippers! Satch and Sol is where you will find the comfy slippers your frozen tootsies are longing for.

Satch and Sol is a business born from a love of social justice and environmental concern. Founder Susan Bell is a mom, entrepreneur, and importer who's fair trade and eco-friendly business practices are truly heartfelt. Satch and Sol has recently gone through the rigorous review process to become a member of Green America and has been approved which is proof of Susan's commitment to the earth and its people. Susan was introduced to the artisans, whose deft and talented hands now create Satch and Sol's beautiful slippers, when her father-in-law brought home these unique slippers for his grandsons after working on a "Revenue Watch" program in Mongolia.

Satch and Sol slippers are produced by amazingly accomplished artisans in Mongolia and are fabricated of the finest felt work I have seen. This thick luxuriously insulating felt fabric is made of camel wool or wool. I have seen other slippers sewn of "duffle" or wool felt pieces but until having Satch and Sol slippers I have never seen slippers skillfully molded from one seamless piece of felt nor have I encountered wool felt of this quality! Even the Inuit use felted socks inside their kamiks {winter footwear} which is testament to this fabric's warmth!

My daughter has been eager to try her slippers even before they arrived. Not only are the slippers warm and comfortable but they are stylish and fashionable. Emma's bouquet Mary Jane's are dyed a natural tan and are embellished with delicate yellow and orange felt flowers irresistible to the touch. Emma loves the fashionable Mary Jane strap. I love knowing that these slippers are not only adorable but they are functional--keeping my darling daughter's precious tootsies toasty! The soles of these are covered with suede allowing for less slippage and added cushion. As an amateur artisan myself I know quality and the skill with which this footwear was made is evident in every meticulous stitch!

The style choices at Satch and Sol are incredible! From Mary Jane's to jester style Jokers, from slippers to booties, you will not click away from the online boutique without being satisfied and lured by the beauty of these products. Satch and Sol also offers felted mittens, hats, purses, hair accessories and gift sets. To my satisfaction hand knit cardigans are also available {I always prefer a hand knit sweater to any department store machine knit garment}!

When you purchase from Satch and Sol you are not only receiving breathtaking quality and value but you are making a life choice! A choice to support the principles of fair trade, giving entrepreneurial Mongolian families an opportunity to share their traditional skills with the world. You are also being kind to the earth and you will be giving your family the gift of toasty tootsies...Priceless!
