SOME EXCITING THINGS WE DO
We are constantly adding new and exciting courses and ways of assisting our students to our portfolio.
These fun-filled workshops can be enjoyed by anyone from school children to corporate team building or just a nice intro into how shoes are made. In one day you put together your own pair of shoes and go home wearing them.
Sneaker production plant
We have teamed up with the only vulcanize plant in the country to produce small or large runs of sneakers for our students. This puts the ability to produce sneaker ranges into the hands of our students at no costs and would normally costs tens of millions Rands to do.
Trade Fair Visits
Twice a year we visit the Liniapelle trade fair and bring all the latest fashion info back and make it available to our students and Alumni. We also take hundreds of photos of shop windows all over Europe and post it on our site for access of students only.
Instant design bases and components
We have partnered with last makers and sole manufacturers to offer ready to go bases for students so there is no development costs for the student. They merely buy the lasts and soles from us to start their own ranges on the latest bases. The students can them manufacture themselves or we can do it for them.
We stock and supply the materials and components the students need so there is no running around looking for it.
Injection mould plant
We have partnered with an injection mold plant which can manufacture up to 10 000 pairs per day of fully injection molded footwear similar to Crocks, Ipamena etc. We have the moldmaking abilities to make any shoe you require.
The local industry in itself is not large enough to grow a sustainable business in footwear. For this reason we have decided to go global with our marketing efforts. Apart from already having a few international students as far as Russia and Australia we are currently working on local brands which we will be launching on international trade shows taking South African footwear global.
