In 2015 Camper began working with artisans in Ethiopia to create a limited edition shoe collection made entirely in Ethiopia. The collection consists of a vegetable leather boot and sandal available in several kaleidoscopic colourways.
So far, Camper’s order has brought about positive improvements with shoe-making capacity building, innovation in leather tanning and better management and manufacturing processes at HAFDE, our partner tannery.
“We are extremely pleased to work with Camper, a family owned company with strong values and a long-term perspective on our collaboration. Beyond developing the collection and providing work for Ethiopian shoemakers, Camper has provided us with guidance in developing the capacities of the artisans.” - Simone Cipriani, Head of the Ethical Fashion Initiative.
