NATURAL RUBBER

Tapered is Sleepers' signature design flip flop with a distinctive square shape. It has a lightly constructed sole in premium grade natural rubber that follows the foot's natural curve and adapts to your foot's unique shape.

The shoe has a thin minimalist strap in premium grade natural rubber.

We love everything green! These flip flops come in the perfect broccoli shade.

Details

Sleepers are flip flops made of natural rubber, tapped in Sri Lanka. The natural rubber is tapped under Fair Trade conditions by Fair Rubber, ensuring the working and living conditions of the primary producers of natural latex. The natural rubber is tapped in a way that ensures the natural life cycle of the trees (around 20-30 gram from each tree every day). Natural rubber breathes, is easy to clean and is incredibly comfortable to wear.

The compound that Sleepers is made of also contains 10-15 % synthetic rubber. This is, to this date, the minimum requirement synthetic rubber needed in order for the flip flops to have the correct consistency and quality. This way, the flip flips do not break down too fast. We are always on the search for the most optimal solutions.

Love & Care

The flip flops can be washed with mild dish soap and a dish brush. We recommend using natural soap, without strong chemicals, so as not to spoil the colour of the shoes (and nature).

About Sleepers

Flip flops made of plants.

Sleepers are eco friendly, fairly traded, premium grade natural rubber flip flops. The company was founded by surf buddies who came across natural rubber flip flops in Sri Lanka in 2001.

Flip flops are usually made of synthetic rubber, but Sleepers flip flops are made of natural rubber tapped in Sri Lanka. The natural latex is produced under Fairtrade conditions by Fair Rubber, ensuring the natural life cycle of the trees. Each flip flop is marked with the name of the plantation the rubber comes from.

Natural rubber breathes, is easy to clean and incredibly comfy.

At the moment Sleepers flip flops still contain 10-15% synthetic rubber, which is the minimum needed to prevent them breaking down too fast, but they are working on a better solution.

Sleepers use recycled FSC paper from the tea industry for their cool packaging.
