Made for exploring, Brother Vellies elevated the sporty Dora sandal with a Swarovski Crystal logo on the outside of the velcro closure. The molded footbed atop vegetable tanned leather and shock absorbing, salvaged rubber tread sole makes these as functional as they are fashionable. Now the only question is socks or no socks? We support both.
Brother Vellies was founded by Aurora James with the goal of introducing the rest of the world to her favorite traditional African footwear, while also creating and sustaining artisanal jobs within Africa. Handmade in South Africa, Ethiopia, Kenya and Morocco, Brother Vellies creates boots, shoes, sandals and handbags in styles that maintain the spirit and durability of their ancestral counterparts. Using eco-conscious chrome-free leather and animal bi-product hides, their vegetable-tanned leather changes in color with age and wear and all hides are unique. Consistency in color and volume will vary from pair to pair making each shoe and bag a personal, ethical fashion statement.
