About R. J. Draper & Co Ltd
A family run manufacturer of luxury sheepskin slippers, sheepskin boots, sheepskin accessories and leather footwear.
R. J. Draper & Co Ltd is an established independent family owned company, founded in 1937. We are based in Glastonbury in the south west of England, traditionally the heart of England's sheepskin industry.
We are proud to say we are a fourth-generation family business, and have been manufacturing in our Glastonbury factory for over 75 years, now the oldest sheepskin footwear manufacturer in the United Kingdom.
We specialise in luxurious natural products of sheepskin and leather, that provide both warmth and comfort, in traditional English designs, which are popular worldwide. Our footwear takes up to 4 weeks to manufacture, and we use only the finest materials available.
Today the company is still very much a traditional family concern, with four generations of the family having been involved with the company. We now produce an average of 1000 pairs of sheepskin slippers and sheepskin boots a week, twenty five percent of which is exported to the highest quality accounts throughout the world. The Glastonbury premises, extended in 1962, are situated in the shadow of the famous Glastonbury Tor.
The ‘’Draper of Glastonbury’’ range consists of luxury sheepskin boots and sheepskin slippers that are still hand crafted in the Glastonbury Factory using the finest materials and skills available and are sold throughout the world.
