Sapmok – the Afrikaans word Kompas spelled backward – began in 2015 as a modern slow-fashion Africa adventure brand, with an aim to support conservation efforts.
Sampok’s shoes are created by some of the best cobblers in South Africa, with comfort being a priority. Their shoe sizes range from children’s size 1 to men’s size 14. All cutting, measuring and stitching is done from scratch, allowing great amounts of creativity in the manufacturing process. Their shoes are tailored to give an authentic feel and support adventure and real-life experiences.
Sapmok’s original collection focused on Vellies (Velskoene), however, they have recently launched their range of sustainable and locally-made cork flip flops. Sapmok also creates leather belts, slippers, and bags.
Their Nepal Bag is their version of a duffel bag – big enough to carry everything you need, but small enough to be hand luggage.
