The Gacha collection is a unique and limited edition of hancrafted beaded shoes.
The Jean-Felicien Gacha Foundation was created in 2002 to help educate and provide occupational skills to local villagers in Cameroon. Thanks to the Foundation’s collective of women and their savoir-faire in beadwork, Twins for Peace has created an exclusive line of sneakers with handsewn beads. Each pair represents 50 hours of work.
Sales benefits goes to the association, which in turn, allows them preserve this traditional knowledge and help provide work and craft education to women. Due to local resource constraints in Cameroon, production has been exported to India, while still respecting the traditional craftsmanship and processes. We still continue to support the Foundation and produce exclusive styles in Cameroon.
