Slippers are increasingly being requested by hotel and B&B guests. The aforementioned being a very particular object in the history of footwear. The terms “slipper” and “flip flops” are often used refering to the same thing: footwear for rooms and / or homes. The key difference is that slippers are close-toed and flip-flops are open-toed.
When a customer finds slippers in the room where they will reside, they feel welcomed. Where does this feeling come from? The history behind this is fascinating, and also explains why they are so requested by the guests.
The slippers were always an obsession of many kings / queens and intellectuals; For example, it is said that Marie Antoinette possessed more than 500 pairs and the Empress Josefina Bonaparte, is said to have liked her slippers so much that she unconsciously used them at all times, breaking them after the excessive wear, causing her shoemaker to complain. This shoe, in fact, is not made for walking outdoors, but to stay at home, it is a shoe for leisure, resting and even intimacy. For centuries it has been a symbol of social distinction, which later became a sign of the intellectual elite, Gabiele d’Annunzio, for example, was the first to use it outside the home, and then became a fascinating and peculiar symbol to successful men like David Bowie; Flavio Briatore even wore slippers at his wedding, as to suggest that he has reached “quiet and relaxed life.”
Trips, vacations, holidays, in short, everything related to the escape of ordinary life, is a special moment in peoples’ lives, when they want to feel like kings and queens even if only for a few days . If you were to choose a hotel, for example, you know that every day you’ll have a clean room, you do not have to cook or even set the table. Here the addition of accessories such as slippers, increase the degree of customer satisfaction.
