We are obsessed with the safari chic footwear of ethical fashion brand Brother Vellies! Founded by designer Aurora James, Brother Vellies celebrates traditional African craftsmanship and style, while also creating sustainable jobs for artisans on the continent.
With shoes handmade in South Africa, Kenya, and Morocco, Brother Vellies offers a range of swoon-worthy sandals, heels, and booties that draw on local raw materials and ethically-sourced animal products (think: leather, fur, mohair & more.)
We can’t get enough of Brother Vellies’ fierce footwear so we decided to team up with them for a photoshoot featuring their best-selling shoes and our brand-new apparel line. We love the way our African printed textiles play off Brother Vellies’ textural, striking footwear for an all-around culturally-inspired and (ethically) fashion-forward look. Check out our shoot below and get inspired to create your own made-in-Africa look.
