Brother Vellies

Brother Vellies

Founder Aurora James launched Brother Vellies in 2013 after traveling throughout the African continent. Inspired by regional craft traditions, she established workshops employing local artisans to create shoes inspired by local tradition with ethically sourced material. Named for the South African Veldskoen, known colloquially as 'Vellies', the company has a deep and abiding commitment to recreating traditional African footwear for a new generation.
