The Ababa Sandal is a simple shoe on a mission, walking in the footsteps of our ancestors to take barefoot to a whole new level. Made with Ethiopian Wild Hide, this subtle, naturally-scarred leather is provided by small-scale farmers. As part of our Soul of Africa range, Ababa Kids are handmade in Ethiopia, empowering makers, supporting local communities.
Hand-stitched in Addis Ababa directly providing sustainable jobs, the shoes are made with Ethiopian-sourced Wild-Hide naturally tanned by our partners Pittards meeting international environmental standards. Sourced from Ethiopian small-scale, independent farmers this soft, flexible leather shows individual markings that reflect a life with freedom to roam.
Ababa shoes carry the Proudly Made in Africa award, as they are independently verified for their quality, materials used and ethical production.
