felt is a strange and yet incredible material. it is hugely versatile, yet has its own unique properties and does it's own thing. different batches vary in colour, texture and grade, and respond differently to wear. as such, the appearance of your slippers will naturally change over time, but this is all part of the charm of mahabis.
caring for your mahabis
to keep your mahabis looking fresh it's worth taking the soles off the slipper when you're not wearing them, just now and then, so as to help let the upper breathe a little. to clean your mahabis, just use a damp cloth and let them air dry. machine washing can risk misshaping them so we don't recommend it. but if you choose to, be sure to use a low heat setting, (e.g. 30 degrees).
