Smart South African Sandals

With this unpredictable spring weather I long for the creative spirit and the beautiful  summer climate of Cape Town. I love to share this sustainable brand with you…

During the Design Indaba in Cape Town I met Adhiambo Mula – Lauwers; a sparkling entrepreneur from Johannesburg, South Africa and founder of Galago. Inspired by traditional crafts and techniques such as beading, knitting and leatherwork, Adhiambo created this smart interchangeable handcrafted sandal label.

The Galago sandals provide a blank canvas for artisanal and design skills. The soles are made from quality leather. With the interchangeable uppers you can change and customize your footwear to fit your individual style and outfit.

This forward fashion brand is crafted and inspired around Africa. Galago believes in a conscious and sustainable approach in their employment and production methods. The design-driven collection is handmade by local communities in Alexandra township. The leathers and materials are sourced in South Africa. In embracing the African aesthetic Galago creates contemporary fashion items, infused with a soul.
