Camper Unveils ‘Made in Ethiopia’ Collection

Sourcing Summit NY — Join us on Oct. 17 for the must-attend apparel supply chain conference.

Camper collaborated with the Ethical Fashion Initiative (EFI) for a second installment of limited-edition shoes made entirely in Ethiopia.

The EFI, a flagship program of the International Trade Center, aims to empower micro-producers in developing areas by connecting them with fashion brands like Camper, creating employment in Ethiopia while capitalizing on minimal environmental impact.

With a mix of African aesthetic and urban elements, the brand dishes out four new shoes in time for summer. The collection features a sporty re-interpretation of Camper’s original shoe, the Camaleon. Unisex designs include a lace-up oxford shoe and a double strapped sandal. Both styles use East African handmade tie-dyed leather.

Through the EFI partnership with Camper, Ethiopia’s tannery has improved its technical footwear development capabilities while giving access to local artisans and their regional techniques, not to mention the added benefit of improving workers’ access to jobs and skills.

The collection is available now online starting at $210.
