La Pantoufle à Pépère, 100% made in France
Winter 2012. Barbara is a project manager in the training sector and Arnaud is a textile sales rep. But they are both eager to launch a project that would be more in step with their aspirations. They decide to become partners and revive an old French slipper : the charentaise. The Pantoufle à Pépère was born.
Today La Pantoufle à Pépère is distributed in over 100 shops in France, Belgium and the Netherlands. These are mainly upmarket ready-to-wear and concept stores.
La Pantoufle à Pépère has quickly met many and varied clients : from trendy hypsters to grandads who did not wear them any longer, and young people and children at whom no original slippers were aimed. The charentaises were initially purposed for men but they quickly appealed to women clients. That is the reason why La Pantoufle à Pépère offers models especially dedicated to women, in particular the Moonwalk or the Huguette bootee .
2018 marks the launch of a new product. Caps. That are made-in-France with highly qualitative retro fabrics. And as the results are forthcoming, the range of caps has been widened with golf caps and chapkas.
