When Cold is So...cold, You Can Use Italian Babbucce

By Xxlauraxx @all4italy


grandmother makes the best babbucce!!

Definitely it’s not cold as in other countries in Italy now. Today in Milan we have 8 degrees , anyway for us it is time for the coat , the gloves and the hat. Above all  it is time to use an  item of clothing that we might not define as fashionable, but it is very nice to wear in the evening when you go to sleep!
Ladies and gentlemen, here the babbucce ! Yes, it’s true the word is quite funny! My grandmother has always made by hand wonderful babbucce ​. This is why  I have never to buy them . Now I have to start thinking about it because I do not know how to do them, and sooner or later I'll have to buy them. The babbucce were born as wool slipper to warm the feet of the children, they are the classic socks ( because they don’t have the soles)  but made ​​with thick wool . I can tell you that the way to have the babbucce in Italy is to buy online in some web sites where people sell the hand-made clothes.  One more way is to know someone who can do it or to learn how to create them . 


babbucce for baby

They are not born in Italy : the babbucce are  from the East. They originally were light shoes . They had been adopted by the Etruscans and reproduced by the famous Etruscan shoemakers whose fame exceeded local boundaries . They  are the warmest gift that your grandma might give you. In the fashion market babbuce are  some very soft slippers but the real Italian  babbucce   are hand-made and they have not the soles , so the babbucce made by our grandmothers

When Cold So...cold, Italian Babbucce


Sicuramente non fa freddo come in altri paesi del mondo. Oggi a Milano registriamo 8 gradi, ma per noi è tempo di capotto, guanti e cappellino. Soprattutto è tempo di un capo d’abbigliamento che potremmo dire non modaiolo ma che fa tanto piacere indossare la sera prima di andare a letto! Signori e signori ecco le babbucce! Sì è vero la parola è abbastanza buffa. Mia nonna mi ha sempre fatto delle magnifiche babbucce di lana fatte a mano. Avendo sempre avuto babbucce fatte a mano non mi sono mai posta il problema di dove e come le vendessero. Però effettivamente dovrò incominciare a pensarci perché io non le so fare e prima o poi dovrò comprarle. La babbuccia si diffonde come calzina di lana per scaldare i piedi dei bambini: sono le classiche calzine da notte ma fatte con lana grossa. Posso dirvi che l’unico canale per avere delle babbucce come le conosciamo in Italia è comprare online in qualche sito dove le persone pubblicano abiti autocreati, conoscere qualcuno che le sappia fare oppure imparare a farsele. Non sono originarie italiane: le babbucce arrivano dall’oriente come calzatura leggera e pare che fossero state già adottate dagli Etruschi e realizzate dai famosi calzolai etruschi la cui fama superava i confini locali.Sono il regalo più caldo che la nonna potrebbe farvi. Sicuramente nel mercato della moda delle pantofole molto morbide saranno chiamate babbucce, ma le vere, uniche che si conoscono in Italia tramandate dalle nostre nonne, sono senza suola e fatte di lana.
