How was your weekend ? Good I hope albeit the changing weather!
I spent last week with my family and thoroughly enjoyed various ‘days out’ and on one of the days we popped into Cambridge. The idea was … picnic in one of the many beautiful open green spaces,…. head down to the river to introduce ‘punting’ to my Norwegian nieces and ….generally mooch about town.
Well, it did not all go to plan as the heavens literally opened on us (my little Havanese Maggie was literally the size of a small rat after an onslaught of heavy rain). Torrential rain and thunderstorms prevented most of our preplanned ideas but it wasn’t a complete washout as I was pleased to stumble across a very nice store called NORD.
The store is basically all about Scandinavian design and there is a wide range of interiors, fabrics and clothing on display:
Marimekko fabrics, clothing, wallpaper, kitchen accessories and ceramics
Iconic furniture by Artek and G.A.D
As you can imagine, these beautiful items are not cheap but it’s definitely worth a browse.
What I was really pleased to see is that they are stockists of Glerups slippers.
My Norwegian sister-in-law’s sister, the lovely Mette Hege, has lived in Denmark for many years and a few years ago I fell in love with her beautiful slippers and discovered they were called Glerups slippers. She kindly bought me some from Copenhagen as I couldn’t buy them in the UK but now I can!
These slippers are produced from 100% pure, natural wool. The wool is treated naturally and the qualities of wool as amazing when worn directly next to the skin and it is recommended you wear them with bare feet. The inner sole is a double layer of felted wood and the sole is made from calf skin which is soft and flexible. You can even wash them on a wool wash!
I’m delighted that I’ve found a local stockists of these unique slippers as they make wonderful gifts and I can introduce them to family and friends.
If you are in the Cambridge area why not pop by and try some on!
Have a good Monday :)
