We believe a product should last a long time and not clutter a landfill, that is why we use sustainable materials and processes to craft our shoes. Our vellies are NOT cookie cutter clones made in a factory in China, they are handmade with love right here in South Africa. Our purpose is to develop local skills and to develop support for locally made products. We believe that a great pair of Katu Vellies is more than just a pair of shoes. They are a catalyst of new adventures.
