Brother Vellies
Brother Vellies was founded by Aurora James with the goal of introducing the rest of the world to her favorite traditional African footwear, while also 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.
A Toronto-native and New York transplant after a time in Los Angeles, creative director Aurora James finds herself travelling to and throughout Africa - particularly South Africa, Kenya, Nigeria and Morocco - every few months to work with the local artisans, experience the diverse culture of the continent and discover new inspirations for the brand.
