Clara Brito and Margarida Jardim’s original Tufa slippers were initially created from the connection between the Macau-based designer and the Portuguese based artist, merging their living and working experiences and heritage between China and Portugal.
Conceived at home during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown, the ‘Tufa Tao Slippers’ are an extension of the Tufa slippers, and made in collaboration with Portuguese Burel factory. A rethinking of the original design led to the addition of stress and anxiety reducing elements, now giving the users the sensory experience of walking over clouds while having their feet subtly massaged.
