Village Secrets Shoes

Notice from Village Secrets Shoes: Fabulous, feminine Vellies made from the softest leather and, of course, genuine South African shweshwe fabric....

In Africa we have a proverb, 'If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.'

Village Secrets shoes are the collaboration between a designer who is absolutely smitten with South African shweshwe fabric and a skilled and dedicated cobbler who takes pride in his craft. We don’t have people working for us, we have people working with us and together we are bringing you a taste of African fashion.

Our shoes are a combination of the original Three Cats shweshwe fabric, genuine suede leather and superb craftsmanship. 

Known as the 'fabric that whispers', the designs and jewel-like colors of the fabric are entrenched in the traditions and customs of the different South African tribes. Three Cats shweshwe is the only licensed manufacturer of this unique fabric in the world and 60% of the ownership of the factory rests with the workers.  The fabric is often imitated, but never surpassed.
