Our Story

Egos Copenhagen is owned by husband and wife team Gry & Christian, who also own another Fairtrade company Én Gry Og Sif. They have worked in Nepal since 2000 producing felted product.

"After working with felted wool for 10 years we knew wool was the perfect material for slippers, so why not try and create the perfect slipper. It took 3 years from when we got the idea until we had developed a style and fitting which we were 100% satisfied with."

Where does the brand name come from?

On top of the world

Gry & Christian often travel to Nepal and enjoy spending time there and have always been made to feel very welcome even when they have taken children. Nepal is a very poor but beautiful country, rich with smiling and very open hearted people and having production there creates many jobs and it is Egos conviction that it’s the best way to promote a country’s development.

“Right from the start it was important the all of the work
should be carried out under fair and orderly conditions”

Owner of Egos Copenhagen
