Woven Oracle Mary Janes in Whiskey
New for SS17 the Brother Vellies Oracle Mary Jane platforms in Whiskey is a statement platform made from woven leather with light mesh backing to retain its shape. Made in Ethiopia.
Brother Vellies shoes are made in partnership with local craftspeople in Ethiopia, South Africa and Morocco under the supervision of the United Nations. Due to their handmade nature, these shoes may not have the perfect look of a machine-made shoe. We encourage you to support the mission of Brother Vellies to bring trade and jobs to these African nations and to embrace the essence of wabi sabi - the beauty of imperfection.
LCD is especially proud to carry Brother Vellies, the only footwear line to win the 2016 highly covetable, CFDA / Vogue Fashion Fund award. The line sources labor and materials during bi-monthly trips throughout Africa, where founder Aurora James recently partnered with the United Nations Ethical Fashion Initiative to streamline production facilities and secure proper living wages for her producers in Kenya. A lover of textiles with a passion for travel and efficiency, James and Brothers Vellies has only just begun their surely inspirational journey to fashion giant status.
