There are many legends about the origin of wool felt, among which the most interesting one is for the sacred Clemente, the guardian of Western shoe and hat merchants. Once St. Clemente ran desperately in the woods in order to escape the chase of the enemy, his feet started to be hot and painful, but he still tried to get rid of the enemies who were chasing him, so he found some wool in the woods , And stopped and started collecting. In order to relieve the pain, he wrapped the collected wool around his feet, then put his feet back in his shoes, and continued to run wildly. When he finally reached a safe place, when he took out his aching feet from his shoes, he found that it had become a pair of felt shoes. Since then, wool felt has been widely used in religious ceremonies and has become a god of good luck and exorcism from demons.
