Okapi x Rara Studio 'Baba Skoen' baby shoes are fusion of Okapi’s commitment to using disregarded and forgotten material with Rara Studio’s passion for creation and discovery. Each pair has been handcrafted by South African women artisans from RaRa Studios, where immense pride is taken in crafting beautiful and one of a kind treasures of impeccable quality.
Working with select tanneries in the Karoo region, Okapi has pioneered the use of Blesbok leather. Blesbok leather is in keeping with our ethos as it is ethically and sustainably sourced as a by-product of the existing farming industry in South Africa. We work closely with our suppliers to ensure all processes are of the highest safety and quality, along with ethical production practices that respect both animal welfare and the environment. The natural markings which the animal incurs in the wild are included on the skins which are used. This adds to the uniqueness of each piece and is a deliberate inclusion in order to give a more organic and changeable quality.
