Veldskoene (“FELT-skoona”) or colloquially vellies (“FELL-ys”). Southern African walking shoes made from vegetable-tanned leather or soft rawhide uppers. Attached to a leather footbed and rubber sole without tacks or nails. The name comes from Afrikaans vel (“skin”), also assimilated with veld (“field”), and skoene (“shoes”). They were first made in the 17th century by the first Dutch settlers in South Africa. Their design also based on the traditional Khoisan footwear observed by settlers. The footwear was later embedded into the Afrikaaner psyche when velskoene were used as the footwear of the Great Trek.

Artist Inspiration: The Swazi Collection designed to represent the Swazi people of South Africa. The Swazi people a Bantu ethnic group native to Southern Africa. Inhabiting Eswatini, a sovereign kingdom in Southern Africa, as well as South Africa’s Mpumalanga province. We aim to represent all Tribes of South Africa. After all South Africa is a multi cultural country not multi coloured.
