ONAIE Sustainability and Ethical Policy

Ethical Policy

We take the ethical manufacture of footwear very seriously. We know our craftswomen, we know their business practices and we work side by side with our suppliers to ensure ongoing ethical, social and environmental compliance. 

Recycled Sheepskin and Sheep Wool

The skins we use to create our sheepskin slippers are exclusively from Polish sheep. They are always a by-product of the Polish meat industry which operates within the highest regulations for animal welfare. Under normal conditions, these skins would be considered waste, but our craftswoman buy them and transform them into naturally warm, handmade footwear that is bespoke and irresistibly luxurious. 

We only use 100% real sheepskin, carefully selected for the purpose and incorporating different sheepskins finishes and wool colours to create super soft, comfortable and beautiful slippers.

We take extra care to select only the finest materials for use in all of our sheepskin slippers. Every piece is made and finished in the Polish Highlands using age-old techniques, the result is a must-have line of footwear that is both utterly unique and endlessly appealing. The techniques used to craft the slippers have been handed down from generation to generation, and the time and care that goes into each stitch is clear from the luxurious quality.  

Sustainable packaging

We use only Eco-friendly packaging materials such as recycled paper and Jute string. The only plastic that we use is the mailing bags that we are planning to replace in the future. ONAIE goes above and beyond to leave as small a footprint as possible.
