A hobby that grew
In 1993 Nanny from Denmark felted a pair of boots for the first time, and the wool came from her own Gotland sheep. The felted boots were well received among friends and family, so well, that Nanny started a small hobby production. This paved the way for the company glerups.
The development of the production
In the beginning Nanny could only felt two pairs of boots a day. Since then, Nanny and her husband Ove have worked hard in order to develop and improve the product and production technology. Several machines have been invented and discarded, making glerups capable to keep up with demand from addicted customers worldwide.
The glerups headquarter is situated in the Northern part of Denmark – on the country side with fields, trees and fresh air. The headquarter is also Nanny and Ove’s home – and as glerups has grown throughout the years, it has been a part of the journey to re-build, re-decoration and expand the office facilities. Actually today, the new warehouse building is on the field, where Nanny used to have her own Gotland sheep. We treasure the lovely surroundings of our headquarter, and find inspiration and energy in the fresh and natural environment.
We hope you enjoy the “all year comfort” of your new glerups.
