What does upcycling mean?
Upcycling means making something new out of something old, used things or waste materials.
Which products are upcycled?
Our Vintage Jeans Jackets are being upcycled with second-hand or vintage rugs or fabrics. We also use old, second-hand or vintage rugs for the production of our Babouche Slippers. Sometimes we also use off-cut fabrics (leftover or even unwanted fabrics) from other brands or stores.
What kind of print do you use?
Our prints are eco-friendly. Meaning we don't use any harmful chemicals.
All our prints are GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified.
How do I know which Slippers size is the one that will fit me?
As our babouche Slippers are handmade in Marrakech, we cannot guarantee exact sizes. In general they are true to size, but if you are in between sizes we recommend to choose the bigger size.
Why don't you use vegan 'leather' for your products?
We would love to use vegan materials instead of real leather for the production of our slippers and other products. Unfortunately, pinapple leather or other plant-based leather alternatives are very expensive. We have done a lot of research on this, and the price per meter for the leather alternative is very high, meaning we would have to sell a pair of slippers for around 270€.
Secondly, the plant-based leather is too soft to create a real sole base to walk on. Meaning the inside of the slippers could be manufactured with plant-based leather, but the sole should remain real leather as they are no adequate materials proposed in the market at the moment.
But at Tassel Tales we use chrome-free and colorless, undyed leather for all our products, meaning that the leather tanners are not exposed to harmful chemicals while treating the leather.
