The products are all handcrafted, using only sustainably sourced, tough and durable leathers including Bovine, Kudu, Nguni with hair-on, Buffalo and Springbok.

Our love for natural products is reflected in the range of footwear that we supply. Our footwear products are all handcrafted and made according to the stitch-down and stuck-on method.

The Nguni hides are a particular favourite, from which remarkable, one-of-a-kind shoes and boots are created. The Nguni Cattle is indigenous to South Africa, where it has been herded by the Zulu people for thousands of years. The Nguni hide is especially adored for its unique combination of natural patterns and colours varying between black, brown and white.

More about using Nguni & Kudu hide for manufacturing quality boots:

Nguni Cattle are not only some of the most beautiful cattle species in South Africa, their hides are also a popular choice for the manufacture of wallets, belts, footwear, and a range of other leather products. This is not only due to its unique aesthetic appeal, but also its strength and durability. The colour of Nguni hides can differ from whites and brown, to more gold yellow or black. Furthermore, the patterning can also differ – some hides are more spotted than others and this results in different looking products every time. To include these unique colours and patterns in our range of shoes and boots, we offer a selection of beautiful winter boots and vellies with the Nguni hair on.

Kudu leather is another favourite for the manufacture of various everyday items such as wallets, furniture, belts and footwear. This is a popular leather to use for use as it is reversible – the outside offers a sleek leather, while the inside offers a unique, soft suede. Kudu leather is durable and due to the Kudu grazing amongst thorn trees, the leather may feature a few scratches which is great for adding character to the end products. At Peace of Afrika, we offer Kudu leather boots and shoes – both suede and traditional leather – of a wide variety. We also dye the leather to provide clients with a wide selection of colours, from blue or cerise, to yellow.
