These Japanese room shoes or slippers are quintessentially Japanese and we’re thrilled to offer them to you. Plus you can boast that your shoes are quite literally made of paper which we still find absolutely fascinating. The Sasawashi fabric is pill-free and absorbs moisture and odor from your skin. It also is antibacterial and breathable thanks to the infused kumazasa and woven washi fibers. A truly technologically advanced material that will keep your room shoes looking and feeling as fresh as the first wear!
Fit: We advise when finding your size, to measure the foot while wearing the socks (if any) thatyou intend to wear with your room shoes. Foot should not be longer than the foot bed of theshoe. Place your foot on a sheet of paper and place it against any flat wall. Mark a line where your toe stops and then measure that length in centimeters.

A little more on sasawashi... ........we are such a fan of this innovative material called Sasawashi! A fabric that is truly one-of-a-kind, it was founded as a reaction to the wistfulness and ephemeral lifespan of the textile industry. Made from absorbent washi paper threads infused with antibacterial kumazasa plant fibers. This process makes a fabric that is naturally deodorizing, prevents mildew growth and fiber deterioration! We love the Sasawashi brand for their innovativeness and forward thinking approach to textile design and consciousness, but we also feel the brand’s fundamental values speak to us deeply too; comfort, longevity, and simplicity...speaks to the Umei way of life we feel!
