Baabuk - One Family's Journey Inspired by NZ Wool Slippers

Goodness is delighted to be the first New Zealand stockist of the amazing Baabuk slippers.

Baabuk is more than a slipper – it’s a wonderful story of sustainability and family and global connection.

The slippers, made from ancient felting techniques, using New Zealand wool was conceived by Romanian-born German Dan and Swiss wife Galina.

Their quest for an ethical, sustainable business that would enable them to travel the world began with a YouTube tutorial. Working on the kitchen table and bathroom sink they developed the first felted Baabuk slipper and they never looked back.

Today, Baabuk, marking its 10th anniversary, boasts retailers around the globe. Their own Nepalese factory provides fair employment to 30 locals. And the business's commitment to ethics and sustainability has won it B-Corp certification.

Currently living in Wellington, we met the family through friends and loved hearing about their global journey and how they ended up in New Zealand – and when we were offered Baabuk stock for our College Street boutique, of course we said “Yes”!

So, while Winter continues to bite, drop in to Goodness and check out the two styles and fall in love with both the product and the wonderful story of their creation – or buy online at
