Fulfilled by our friends at Handicraft Soul
These absolutely adorable baby booties make for a perfect baby shower gift and keepsake item! They're perfect for photos during baby's first months too.
Crocheted by hand by women in the Karoo, a rural, semi-arid region in South Africa with very few job opportunities. The upper part of the booties is crocheted from hand-dyed yarn made with locally sourced merino wool and the soles are made from repurposed leather off-cuts.
Size: 0-3 months. The booties do stretch slightly.
Dimensions: Length: 4 inches, Width: 2 inches
Since the leather soles are made from repurposed offcuts, the color of the leather on each pair of booties may vary from dark to light brown or gray.
