It all started with founder Tewodros Dechase’s travel to Addis in 2015, which led to a barbershop encounter with a man wearing “the most incredible and comfortable leather boots”. 🙌🏾
It was then he discovered the wealth of materials and skills to be found in Ethiopia for creating quality, sustainable leatherwear.
To keep the artisan craft alive, Tewodros was inspired to marry this incredible level of shoemaking expertise with Ethiopia’s finest materials creating modern and comfortable design of his own liking. One year and many refined styles later, Dechase’s first shoe named Keff was born.
Today, Dechase offers a wide range of modern styles for men and women. With Addis Ababa residing in their hearts, they thrive to become a sustainable brand that creates footwear with local craftsmen to enforce and positively influence economic, environmental and social development.
