In the second part of this Feature, we discuss the economic and manufacturing aspects of Veldskoen shoes. We also discuss how the brand gives back to the community and also helps in environmental sustainability.
We then move on to their second brand – Thula Tula, which showcases exclusive hand-crafted Lesotho blankets of purely African origin.
This brand started during the pandemic, is very personal to the couple as it is an ode to their daughter and her late grandmother.
Thus, Co-Founders Steve and Angela Watts make it a goal to spread awareness about tradition with a personal touch.
In part 2, we discuss Factory conditions and manufacturing processes of Veldskoen shoes; How they commercialize shoes without changing the traditional craft; How they give back to the people and the environment; Their pandemic experience and the birth of Thula Tula; History of Lesotho blankets; How their proceeds provide for the community; Inspiration behind the naming of the Thula Tula brand; and so much more.
