Galago was founded by Adhiambo Mula-Lauwers, a multilingual creative who holds a BBA degree and is a prize-winning graduate of the Goldman Sachs - GIBS 10,000 Women Programme.
Galago is an ethics driven, fashion-forward brand, crafted and inspired around Africa, drawing on craft and traditional techniques to create contemporary products.
Galago's brand principles revolve around sustainability in its employment practices and consciousness in the materials sourced.
In addition to bridging the style and price gap, we are committed to honouring our African heritage by making our products in Africa using African hands to cut, stitch and manufacture our signature shoes.
Why would you buy from us?
Well, each sandal has your handprint on it, you choose exactly what combination works for you. If we haven’t got what you have in mind, pop us a mail and we would be happy to source something special for you (bridal parties welcome).
Our sandals are interchangeable, that means that each season you can refresh and reuse your soles with brand new uppers. It makes packing for the holidays a breeze. 1 sole, multiple uppers and you have your summer wardrobe covered. Its great on the environment, great on your pocket.
We handcraft most of our shoes in our sunny studio in downtown Johannesburg, sourcing our raw material in South Africa and employing talent (primarily women) from the community. We are an ethics driven brand, big on Africa.
We really, really love what we do and the impact we have on so many fronts.
