Our signature Burkina Slide is built on a vegetable-tanned leather sole using traditional Ethiopian shoemaking techniques. The upper fabric is handwoven in Burkina Faso in their local patterns by a marginalized community of female weavers, then finished in Ethiopia with a lightweight leather lining. The bow can be untied and repositioned to fit your mood on the day you wear it.
Brother Vellies shoes are handmade from bi-product or environmentally conscious materials. Because of this, no two pairs will ever be identical, and each pair has its own personality, making them yours and yours alone.
