A simple description of the making processes:

Clicking - Hand cutting using brassbound patterns CLICKING (Stage One) - Hand cutting using brassbound patterns
The leathers and fabrics that make the slippers are cut by hand using graded brassbound patterns. Each style has a different set of patterns, which are graded to fit each size of "last" in the range.
Closing - Stitching the pieces together to make the upperCLOSING (Stage Two) - Stitching the pieces together to make the "upper"
The pieces of leather or fabric are stitched together to form the "upper". "Toe puffs" and "heel stiffeners" are incorporated to enhance the style and shape of the slipper, ensuring that it maintains its shape after lasting and while it is being worn.
Hand Lasting - Lasting the uppers using tacks and cement HAND LASTING (Stage Three) - Lasting the uppers using tacks and cement
The "insole" is attached to the bottom of the "last" and forms the foundation of the slipper. The "uppers" are laid over and wrapped around the "last" and tacked and cemented to the "insole". After lasting is completed the leather sole and heels are attached and the slipper is almost complete. Finally the inner sock is inserted and the slippers are then ready to be checked and cleaned or polished before they are boxed.
