What Is Soul?
Fascinated by the handcrafted springbok fur and tire-tread sandals her greens keeper wore, Giovanna First just had to meet up with the artisan who created these works of art. Three years later Giovanna, Hermi, Lucky and his wife Vivi, have created the incredible shoe brand and product that is now Soul.
With a mix of Italian style, Greek flair, and a South African touch, the soul team get their inspiration and creativity from their Mediterranean heritage and African soul. Each and every pair is made with love, passion, and extreme attention to detail, and exudes personality and style with the use of colour, pompoms, tassels, beads, and dyed animal hair. There is no limitation to creativity, texture, and colour mixing!
Materials to create these stunning pieces of footwear are mainly sourced locally, but additional embellishments and trimmings are sourced overseas. Each pair has its own unique finishings and details, making it a one-of-kind.
The Shoes Are Made In An Environmentally Friendly Manner
Soul sandals are made from vegtan leather which is naturally has a tinged beige colour, along with a natural, woody earth scent. This type of leather has so many advantages, including its colouring and texture, strength and durability, as well as its natural ageing quality.
