Sleepers: sustainable flip-flops designed by experts

During a surf trip to Sri Lanka in 2001, the Norwegian surf buddies Tor Marius and Frode came across flip-flops made of natural rubber. They took them with them in their surf bags for their family and friends. They were both fascinated by the sustainable flip-flops through their own work in the sportswear and footwear industry. In the sixteen years since the surf trip, Tor Marius and Frode have done a lot of product testing themselves for a sustainable replacement for synthetic rubber. From algae to different recycled compounds. In the end, natural rubber came out best. Together with Nina, Frode's wife and business partner, the three founded the brand named Sleepers.

Fair production in Sri Lanka

It then took another three years to set up the supply chain for the sustainable slippers. The Sleepers team managed to set up the entire production in Sri Lanka. There, the rubber is carefully and sustainably produced through living rubber trees. These are in FSC forestry managed plantations. Together with Sleepers' partner, Fair Rubber Association, they also ensure that fair wages and working conditions are guaranteed for the workers. For the best quality, the slippers must still consist of 5-10% synthetic rubber. Otherwise, there is a chance that the flip-flops will break down quickly, which again would compromise their durability. However, they are constantly looking for the most optimal and durable composition for their flip-flops. Also, the flip-flops are dyed without chemicals. 

Unique slippers made of natural rubber

For Take It Slow, we have chosen the "tapered" model. This is the classic model of Sleepers, but with a characteristic square shape. This gives the slippers a unique look and makes them just that little bit more special. The square shape has been part of the fashion scene since the Middle Ages, and can still be seen today. The sole is made of natural rubber and follows the natural shape of the foot. In addition, the sole also molds to your foot and has an anti-slip pattern.

Flip-flops against ocean pollution

Traditional slippers are often made of synthetic rubber. This comes from by-products of the petroleum industry (plastic). Flip-flops are one of the products most commonly found in ocean pollution. This is because they cannot be broken down. In order to keep your flip-flops beautiful even longer, it is important that they are not left in full sunlight for too long. If the slippers get dirty, it is best to clean them with a natural soap. So you can enjoy your beautiful Sleepers as long as possible.
