our Workshop

Here at the workshop, we strive to create products ethically. Our shoes are hand-made with recycled tyre soles, accentuated by the use of local African fabrics and our packaging is made from recycled paper. Our labour force is well compensated equitably based on volume, allowing more diligent employees to make up to $400 a month (almost three times the national average).
