Frith, a young mother of two boys joined a group of women learning to make slippers one evening. She enjoyed it and loved the slippers that she came home and made slippers for the rest of her family.
Living in South Africa meant that sheepskin was, and is, easy to come by as one of the biggest by products of the sheep farming industry.
Fast forward a few years, and everybody got slippers for Christmas, she started to taking orders at a local market. She did this for many years with her boys playing under the stall table.
Fast forward a decade or two and her hands started to take strain from all the cutting, punching and stitching so her now adult son, and his wife, started helping out fulfilling orders.
That's where we are today, with all Frith, Jeremy & Wendren making slippers! The family homestead business continues.
