Baabuk is a sustainable shoe brand championing the magical properties of wool. The Swiss-based company uses ethical production and sustainable innovation to create comfortable shoes and slippers.
Baabuk is passionate about wool and choose wool as an alternative & more sustainable material to what is usually used in footwear – leather, cotton, and synthetics. But wool also has amazing properties – it is antibacterial, insulating, low in the carbon footprint, making it a “magic fiber” perfect for feet. Baabuk were inspired by the ancient Siberian Valenki – a wool boot that’s been used to keep feet warm for centuries in the coldest parts of the world. Baabuk adopted this ancient technology into a modern design.
Being B-Corp Certified Company was important to Baabuk from the beginning of the company. To become B Corp certified, a business must meet a set of rigorous assessments for balancing purpose and profit. Criteria include standards for social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency. Becoming certified in 2017 verifies for our employees, community, vendors, customers, partners and friends that Baabuk are doing our upmost to make the world a better place to live and work.
Here at Woollykins we love and admire the work of Baabuk and hope you enjoy their slippers for many years to come.
