Sub-Saharan Africa footwear company Oliberté just dropped an update of its women’s moccasin silhouette with the Hirari boot. The brand has updated the unique boot with a stylized, hand-cut fringe on the cupsole, goat leather lining, a molded insole with the map of Africa, cement construction and a rubber outsole. Pretty cool kicks!
Another cool thing about these kicks is The Hirari is handcrafted in the world’s only Fairtrade Certified footwear factory.
Oliberté is a sustainable brand supporting workers’ rights in sub-Saharan Africa. We believe in empowerment, transparency, and doing right by all. This means making premium quality products with a lifetime warranty, and it means treating every employee, everywhere in the world, with respect.
In 2009, we started off as a small footwear company partnering with factories and suppliers in Africa. Since then, we gained enough momentum to launch our very own factory in 2012. We make every single pair of Oliberté shoes at this factory in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. In September 2013, we also became the world’s first Fair Trade Certified™ footwear manufacturing factory.~Oliberte‘
