First Look: Camper and Ethical Fashion Initiative's Made In Ethiopia Shoe Collection

Get an exclusive first look at Camper and Ethical Fashion Initiative's latest collection of summer-ready tie-dye shoes.

DIASPORA—For its latest collection, Spanish-based fashion house Camper has teamed up with the International Trade Centre's Ethical Fashion Initiative to create a unisex line of sandals and lace-ups fit for the oncoming summer heat.


Each shoe was crafted in Ethiopia, using local tie-dye leather, Chloé Mukai of Ethical Fashion Initiative tell us. The collaborator's second line of footwear comes in two distinct colorways: a dark indigo and a bright blue. The shoes feature a simple wedge sole.

They are a "re-interpreting of Camper’s very first shoe Camaleon," says the manufacturer in a press release. "This season, the designs fuse together African aesthetics with urban elements to create styles perfect for summer."

Below, we give you an exclusive first look at Camper and Ethical Fashion Initiative's latest shoe collaboration.
