Children's slippers Babu

"Little feet need warmth and security." Babus! They are super comfortable slippers made of wool with a leather sole, which are also padded with foam rubber. "Babus" combine all the properties that children's shoes must have: they are warm, comfortable and still stable. The children never lose important contact with the ground because the sole is not hard. "Babus" sit firmly on the foot and cannot fall off when sitting. Therefore you will never have to wear your children's slippers again! Of course, they are also washable (up to 40 degrees). "Babus" are the invention of a mother and the result of years of experience with the children and grandchildren.
The story: The idea for the production of these shoes, which are tried and tested in Germany, came from a friendship between a Peruvian and the German inventor of the shoes. The German woman was constantly busy making "Babus" for friends and relatives and could not meet the high demand. The idea arose to manufacture the shoes in Peru. With the help of the Peruvian friend, it was possible to quickly find skilled women who went to work with a great deal of commitment and imagination. The production of the "babus" there had other positive aspects as well: the social crochet and sewing strengthened the social contact between the women there. In this way, a source of income for about 20 families was created. By the way, the name "Babu" comes from the vocabulary of the son of the inventor when he was small. He himself called his beloved slippers "Babus".
