These navy velvet women's loafers are an example of our venetian slipper style. Similar to our signature albert slippers, the venetian features a rounder, mid-height tongue, regal purple quilted lining and a leather sole. However, it's the embroidery that really sets these apart from other luxury slippers.
The bees embroidery has been one of the most popular designs of recent years amongst Bowhill & Elliott's esteemed customer base of both royalty, celebrity and civilian alike. Delicate and dainty, this hand-embroidery will be perfect for those bee-lovers amongst us, or simply those who want to nod to the beauty of the British countryside.
As popular worn as an outdoor shoe as they are indoors, many fans of these handmade slippers wear them as they would any other women's flats.
Crafted from one single piece of velvet with a complementing fabric binding, they cut a smart look either dressed up, worn more casually, or (of course) sat by the fireside.
These venetian slippers are handcrafted in the same way, with the same highest quality materials as they always have been, right from the heart of Norwich's city centre in the Bowhill & Elliott workshop.
Bowhill & Elliott are Norfolk's oldest remaining shoe manufacturer, established in 1874, a bastion of the industry that once dominated Norwich's domestic output.
