Woven Felts &
Textiles for Charentaise Slippers
As the last manufacturers in the world of woven wool felt for footwear, our know-how and our desire to innovate have enabled the Jules Tournier factory to obtain the Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant label of excellence for craftsmanship.
Woven with 3 or 5 warps, the thickness of our felts varies between 8 and 14 millimeters.
In addition, today, we produce all the textiles that go into making the slippers—the sole, the sock liner, the faux fur and the upper. While we do not manufacture clothing ourselves, we can supply our customers with all the textiles necessary for making wool slippers.
We can also glue our textiles together to make them double-sided—for example, a woven pure wool side and a faux fur reverse. For each fabric, we offer a range of colors. Our design office also makes every effort to meet your needs. We can adapt our fabrics to your desires and make custom colors for you.

In the Weaving Workshop, fancy weaves are woven on special loom assemblies where the reeds, the threading, and the knotting are determined by the variations of thread sizes present in each fabric. These technical specificities give our articles all their richness.
