Since 1888, Stegmann has been handcrafting their signature Original 108 wool clogs. Made of hand-felted wool on a time-proven shoe last, using traditional and proprietary methods, the Original 108 has been perfected over generations. There is no cut and sew at Stegmann. Instead, the wool clogs have a smooth and seamless one-piece upper with uniform thickness throughout.
The benefits to this method are two fold: Customers enjoy a non-rubbing, non-irritating shoe, as well as an extended lifespan as there are no internal seams that can come apart.
Each Stegmann color contains a secret “recipe” or blend of wools to get the perfect color depth. These include the finest merino wools from New Zealand and South America, as well as sustainably sourced local wools from Austria and around Europe.
Stegmann partners with local farmers to purchase wool from rare and endangered species to ensure their continued existence in the region. In some cases the supply chain is less than 30 miles long, and truly a farm to foot experience.
Stegmann wool clogs are made in Europe and assembled in the USA. Wool and Cork components are imported and are then hand built in the United States, ensuring a final quality check.
