One of our recent excursions that I have lacked the time to blog about was to revisit Groundcover Leather Company in Curry’s Post near Howick in Natal. Daughter K wanted to take a couple of pairs of their leather sandals back with her to England. Their handmade products are of superb quality and workmanship. I have lost count of the number of soles I have worn out completely on a pair of all-purpose shoes I bought from them decades ago. The uppers remain in good condition.
The factory and shop are in a hundred-year-old farmhouse; very quaint.
In the grounds one may see a charming sculpture, ‘The Elves and the Shoemaker’, based on the fairy tale.
Here is a view of the countryside the farmhouse is set in.
