Matsidiso is inspired by the beautiful diversity of pan-African cultures. We use vibrant colours and textures, and meld them into our designs in a modern way.
Our handcrafted shoes are designed in-house and are produced by our heritage family-run factory, with 20 years’ experience in the shoe manufacturing industry behind it.
Each of our shoe cobblers has an incredible history in the footwear industry (some working over 35 years in footwear). Our vision is that through our ethically made shoes, we will have the opportunity to help build the SA economy by offering our team members pension plans, educational funds for their family members, and we will be able to offer ongoing learning and upskilling, to ensure that our team is more resilient to the sometimes unforeseen changes in a developing economy.
It is Matsidiso’s overall mission to bring positive changes to South Africa and create new opportunities for our team, by means of sharing the vibrant heritage and rich culture of SA through our unique and modern designs.
