SAWA: Ethiopian Footwear With A Conscience

What a great feeling to discover products and makers that seek a healthy balance of purpose, aesthetics, and functionality. I recently stumbled upon SAWA Footwear- an incredibly beautiful retro footwear collection with a deep connection to the local community of Ethiopian craftspeople.

Not only is SAWA a shoe company doing business in Africa, the company sources their materials, production and even web design and communications in Addis Ababa Ethiopia and uses this approach as a real way to support local community.  These lightweight shoes are not just a fashion statement, they are built out of quality materials—and if you want ’em, check out the company website here to purchase online or learn more about the company.
