Denim Babouches

This summer Surf Bazaar and TheSurfBazaar.com have an exclusive Brother Vellies traditional white denim babouche. Babouches are very popular in Morocco where the shoes are made. They are made from recycled denim, which is a material found in abundance in Africa and if unused will otherwise be sent to landfills. This is one of Brother Vellies most sustainable designs as it proactively repurposes excess finished goods.
