Instead, the packaging of the pair will be offered with "plastic free" materials.

The customization in the same shoe is usually done on the instep, but lately it has been a trend to apply the logo of the establishment on the insole where the ankle is.

Another option is to pair the pair of slippers with a tissue or paper bow that is printed with the hotel logo.

Yes, you can, but in the case of some shoe models, this can be a problem over time.

The layer of sponge applied under, for example, the polyester fabric, with time, tends to take on a yellowish tone. Although this does not affect the performance of the shoes, it may result in a reason for return.

On the other hand, for reasons of environmental sustainability, slippers made of natural materials and fabrics, such as cotton terry cloth or organic cotton, can be paired with a paper band, and even in a paper bag.
