Making it Hyperlocal: The Story of a (Partially) Homemade Pair of Slippers

The last step makes the product ultra-local, since, after all, it happens in owner's own home. For Tine-Beres, it was an important part of the design. By involving the owner in the assembly process, it creates a closer relationship with the product. Each pair of slippers will be slightly unique, based on the person who owns them. Check out the project on Kickstarter.
