Sasawashi Japanese Winter Room Boots
Slip into something more comfortable.
If you’re anything like us, the first thing you do when you get home after a long day is take off your shoes and slip into slippers. If you’re really like us, you slip into these plush Japanese slipper booties. Morihata sources tools and textiles for the home that are super soft and cozy, and these booties—an essential in Japanese homes—are no exception. They’re made of soft wool, to keep your toes toasty, and they’re lined with Sasawashi fabric, an ingenious blend of washi paper (you know, the stuff we use to wrap presents with flair and decorate our walls) and kumazasa extract (a Japanese plant celebrated for its antibacterial properties), which brilliantly absorbs moisture and odors. No stinky slippers here! Just that at-home coziness we crave.
