Based in the village of Zenabwork , Ethiopia, soleRebels produces the finest artisan-crafted footwear using only eco-sensible materials. soleRebels began with an idea that the creation of shoes could be a platform for inspiration and hope in a land that needs both. They craft excellent footwear that gives the person wearing them immense comfort and joy. They create great employment opportunities and give people who are often ignored a chance to engage in creative endeavors. From their inception, they set out to re-imagine and redefine the traditional Ethiopian selate shoe, or rubber tire sole shoe, in dynamic and vibrant new fashions. Employing the highly marginalized people of Ethiopia, soleRebels intends to create something that is authentically local, but with a truly universal flavor. With a unique sensibility, they use the traditional Ethiopian art of hand-spinning and hand-looming organic cotton into the finest, artisan-crafted footwear. So, help yourself, help others and be proud beacuse you're making the world a better place - one step at a time.
