Part of my series with Catalina Kulczar called You’re Doing a Good Job. Catalina had three pairs of Chilote slippers for her family and raved about them. They are so lovely and special and it was a delight to learn more about them.
Chilote’s wool slippers with salmon-skin bottoms employ artisan women in Patagonia to make every pair, empowering communities through wages while maintaining a historic craft. I particularly love that they created a safe and supportive environment for female workers.
I was super excited to learn that they are also a certified B Corp. I applaud them – this is a very difficult classification to achieve and it speaks volumes to what they have accomplished. If you don’t know what B Corps are, you can read more here.
