our responsibility

It is important for us to think about our surroundings and the responsibility we have when we produce glerups slippers.
Everything we do is done with respect and care for people, animals and nature.

respect for animal

Every sheep is treated with respect. They live and graze in free and natural surroundings.

respect for people

Our relationships worldwide are treated loyally. There are safe and secure conditions. And a healthy culture. We respect each other.

respect for nature

Nature is treated with consideration. We work dedicatedly to create the right balance between the animals, the earth and the climate. In 2021, we planted new trees in a protected forest area of 17.5 hectares. An initiative which is now part of a 200-year-old Danish tradition of nature protection.

"…It takes time to make a pair of glerups. We don’t rush the process, but rather, we take our time. My parents spent many years testing and developing our product. They put a lot of hard work and many hours into glerups. All the way from the sheep to your feet. We take extreme pride in the fact that we own our own factory, partner with honest and caring farmers, and have eyes on every step of our value chain… My parents started glerups this way and their legacy will never be forgotten."

Passion is the keyword

– and we are passionate about our sheep and the Gotland wool we produce. We cherish the longterm partnership with glerups. Did you know that Ove Glerup was one of the founders of the Danish Gotland Sheep Society and his nickname was the “Gotfather" ;-)
