African Handmade Shoes


Africanas employs skilled craftsmen and women, at our factory in Cape Town, South Africa, and we are proud of our contribution to creating employment and opportunities here. We are very passionate about the African continent, the diverse cultures, and the people. It is therefore our belief that we ought to be giving back by contributing positively in uplifting the local economy.
#STARTaBOOM is an initiative we have created to further achieve this goal. Through the project, we are able to help fund local entrepreneurs, and to assist them with mentorship, and creating a legacy.
Each year, we select three local start-ups that demonstrate sustainability, and growth potential. With your help, one of these entities could be the one receiving up to 10% of our profits, to fund the growth of their own businesses.
