Get ready to step into a magical style with new Disney Espadrilles from Ubuntu! If Ubuntu sounds familiar, that is because they did a Lion King collaboration this past summer with Disney. Ubuntu actually calls them an Afridrille, because they are inspired by the Spanish espadrille style, but are 100% made in Africa.
The shoe retains the look and feel of the espadrille while weaving in the local African flair. They do this through unique custom designs, indigenous African patterns, and the kanga fabric. Now we can get them in several different Disney styles.
One fun part about these shoes, is that they are customizable! You choose the Disney inspired print you like, and then get to pick from over a dozen background color choices. You can even select your own custom color.
Another beautiful part about UBUNTU is that it is not just a name, but an African philosophy of unity: ‘I Am Because We Are.’ UBUNTU is also an organization that embodies this principle. They also believe the products we buy should connect us to the people who make them. Each Afridrille is handmade by UBUNTU Mums in Maai Mahiu, Kenya.
