Inject a dose of pattern and colour into your summer holiday wardrobe with beaded sandals from The Afropolitan Shop’s Summer 2012 collection. A traditional style sandal hailing from the coastal region of Kenya forms the basis of the design which feature leather soles, in a choice of black or brown, accessorised by brightly coloured intricate traditional hand beading on the uppers. Created by Kenyan-American, Beverly Lwenya; The Afropolitan Shop began life in 2007 as a blog called ‘the Afropolitan Network’ sharing the stories of Africans across the globe, and what started out as a hobby has now become a full-time career with the launch of The Afropolitan Shop; an e-commerce platform celebrating and promoting the work of African designers and artisans. April 2012 saw the debut of The Afropolitan Shop’s own collection of sandals and jewellery design by Beverly working with Kenyan artisans and producers.
