Imperial green velvet Furlane
These Italian slippers are made by hand in the Friuli region, next to Venice. Still worn by the gondoliers in Venice, they are entirely made by hand with velvet coming from Tuscany.
The outsole is made of recycled rubber of bicycle tires. Because of the handsown seams in the sole, it is not waterproof. These Venetian slippers are mainly suitable for the interior, although the current trend makes them very fashionable outside because they are very light and comfortable. Outside, their wear will be faster.
They are designed using the sewing technique popularized by Repetto ballerinas, but invented a long time ago in Italy. The innersole is made in felt, so the furlane Venetian slippers are very flexible, light and comfortable. Moreover, their elegant and sleek design will bring a casual chic touch to your outfits in all circumstances. These timeless slippers are redesigned by Chatelles adding a two-layer cotton lining for extra hold and a mini exterior heel to walk comfortably. The Venetian slippers are available for men and women with a timeless shape, slightly slim and elegant.

At Chatelles’ origins, there is a pronounced taste for stylish flat shoes… So it was logical to add the furlanes to our flats offer, these outdoor and indoor Venetian slippers still worn by the gondoliers. Chatelles furlanes slippers are elegant slippers, colorful shoes, that can be personalized with tassels and are handmade in Italy.
Why furlanes? Perhaps because these venetian velvet slippers embody tradition, craftsmanship and a certain air of typically Italian dolce vita. Or because they can be both chic and comfortable.
How to wear them: the Chatelles furlanes can be worn like espadrilles, moccasins or ballerina shoes outdoors, and are ideal summer shoes but are also used indoors as night slippers.
The Chatelles extra? Our furlanes all have a real small heel that will enable you to walk, to dance and to live all day long in your furlanes, while preserving your knees, your back, and your joints from any pain. The outside sole is made out of recycled rubber and hand-sewn, in the purest form of the Italian furlanes tradition. The inner solde as a double cotton layer, a natural material, which makes the furlanes sustainable and ESD safety shoes (antistatic).
