TCHA - La Charentaise

Charentaise slippers, an exceptional product made in France since the 17th century.

Born in the French Charente department from the recycling of the felt used to dry paper in the local paper mills, the style of this indoor shoe has evolved over time.

Today, La Charentaise TCHA develops collections inspired by contemporary cocooning and has redesigned the Charentaise slippers to turn them into a fashion accessory that can be worn both indoors and outdoors.

The TCHA collection is designed with noble, simple and natural materials such as wool pressed felt, linen, full-grain smooth leather and velour leather. The removable insole, called “douillette”, has been redesigned by specialists to enable its care and replacement. It refines the much sought-after comfort of the Charentaise slippers and gives them “cloud-nine” cosiness.

The stitch-and-return technique has been preserved; the gesture having remained the same for more than a century.

The lines are clean and contemporary. Traditional know-how meets design. La Charentaise TCHA was awarded a star by L’Observeur du Design 2016, citing it as one of the objects of the year.

Developing a new 100% French-made production in the Charente department helps maintain the quality of this exceptional product and demonstrates our desire to promote French crafts.

After, having graduated from the fine arts school in Angoulême and after a career in creation, marketing and communications, Jean-Luc Bouriau wished to set up his own company. He didn’t hesitate for a moment when, in 2011, the opportunity to relaunch the Charentaise slippers presented itself.

Jean-Luc Bouriau decided to defend the product while preserving the Charente-based know-how of “stitch-and-return”, founded SARL La Nouvelle Charentaise and created the collection TCHA.

care instructions

The felt charentaise slippers offer natural air-conditioning. The success of felt for centuries can be explained by its ability to retain heat in winter and coolness in summer. Its thermo and hydro-regulating properties are unrivalled. It can absorb a third of its weight in water without appearing wet!
So your feet benefit from a healthy, warm and dry environment throughout the seasons!

Wash cold, lightly squeeze out the water by hand, then lay flat on a terry towel and insert an absorbent cloth to return it to its original shape. The ideal is to dry it next to a radiator in Winter.
