Padraig Cottage WholesaleWelcome to Padraig Cottage. This section is for interested wholesalers, if this is you please take the time to learn a little about our company and our products.
Helen made her first pair of slippers for her young son in the winter of 1977, they had a hand cut sheepskin sole and a crocheted upper made with hand spun raw wool, in a few years they would become known as the Original Padraig Slipper. Since Helen started selling her wears at local craft markets, the slipper line and the company have grown and evolved. The slippers now come in numerous colour ways and styles and are sold in boutiques across Canada, the United States and Europe.
Though our company has expanded, employing more than thirty local artisans and support staff, we are still independently owned and operated and our premises remain in North Vancouver, ensuring product quality and support of the local community. The slippers too remain largely the same; they are still hand crocheted and hand dyed in small lots, insuring each pair is one of a kind.
We work closely with our retailers and in the last 30 years Padraig has built a loyal customer base, many of them have been with us since the beginning. Though shoppers are becoming more comfortable with e-commerce, we believe there is no better way for customers to discover a Padraig slipper than in a bricks and mortar store where they can ask questions, slip their hands inside and actually try a pair on.
We select our retailers carefully, making sure their location does not crowd others and their store is right for our product. We take our responsibility to our retailers seriously and expect they value their customers in much the same way. Over time our retailers become a destination for Padraigs within their community. We know our slippers take time to become established in a new market, when they do however, they will become a trusted staple of your store.
