GUTTA SOLES was established in 2012 in Accra, Ghana. The company's initial intention was to design a shoe that was durable enough to handle surface conditions in Africa.
Our reason for founding the company was as a means of organizing income for the artists and our brand as a community based organization. Our founding principle is economic independence by means of natural creativity.
We at Gutta Soles strongly believe that when Africans discover and create oppurtunities with their own "natural" wealth, the entire world will benefit from it.
The shoe line is just one example of this concept. We are exporting, internationally, to affect lives locally. Through information and opportunity we are fighting economic and social inequalities with the hopes of inspiring young Africans to have a positive effect on the world.
Our product is made in Ghana, with Ghanian materials, labor and creativity.
