SA Chamber of Commerce Award

Sheepskin Slippers SA are humbled to be nominated for the

South African Chamber of Commerce (UK) Innovation and Resilience Awards 2021.

This nomination was for successfully pivoting our handcrafted sheepskin slipper business into the e-commerce sector and growing our business despite the pandemic."Before COVID, we were running Sheepskin Slippers SA manually and fielding about 300 touch points per day. When COVID hit, the demand for comfortable home working footwear was huge and therefore had to innovate to achieve success. Moving to e-commerce and automated systems has transformed the business. We now answer 0-2 queries manually per day and sales have increased considerably.” noted Hazel Hoole, Founder of Sheepskin Slippers SA

During the pandemic, some businesses flourished and others survived while their competitors floundered by discovering entirely new markets and creating new, imaginative ways of doing business.

They displayed sheer grit and determination in the face of uncertainty and wave after wave of change, and have not only survived, but emerged stronger for the experience with more sustainable business models.

South African Chamber of Commerce (UK) ‘’SACC’’ aimed to celebrate the innovators who turned challenges into opportunities and setbacks into innovation with increased vigour and resilience. Highlighting success and particularly recognising those who achieved in adversity.

SACC recognised both individuals and businesses, large and small, local and international, who through their innovation are creating the green shoots of growth that will generate economic recovery and give hope to communities across South Africa.

Celebrate Southern Africa Interview

What a lovely chat I (Hazel) had with radio host and podcaster, Dawn Denton of Celebrate Southern Africa in the UK about all things sheepskin slippers. We discussed how Sheepskin Slippers SA started, our ranges, sheepskin ''super-powers'', entrepreneurship, manufacturing, smelly-feet 🤣 and how easy it is for those living abroad to order slippers and have them delivered in SA.

Sami Hall Says Loves Sheepskin Slippers SA

Sami Hall Says...''Wearing Sheepskin Slippers SAs' slippers is like 2 x blerrie baby sheep hugging my feet!''

You might have come across the fabulously funny TikTok sensation and self-proclaimed ''weird'' Sami Hall Says video's whilst scrolling through social media (?).

Sami brings her unique humour into expressing how much she looooves [insert Sami's accent] our sheepskin slippers and how she won't be ''stinky-feeting-up-the-whole-house'' anymore.
