Brother Vellies is the kind of brand that comes along out of the blue and offers something so extraordinary that we at Browns simply had to have it. Founded by Aurora James with the purpose of introducing the rest of the world to her favourite traditional African footwear, whilst creating and sustaining artisanal jobs within Africa. Handmade in South Africa, Kenya and Morocco, Brother Vellies creates boots, shoes and sandals in styles that maintain the spirit and durability of their ancestral counterparts. Brother Vellies have so much going for them: a desire for sustainability, relationships with their farmers, a love of diversity amongst their teams in Africa, and a love of intricate detailing such as Ostrich egg and seashell beading to name a few. We are delighted to offer The Browns’ Edit of Brother Vellies for AW16.
