Fraai means to posess qualities that give great pleasure or satisfaction and is excellent of its kind.  This is exactly what FRAAI LEATHER is all about.  Leather shoes that are beautiful in every sense of the word.  We love leather: the smell, the look and the sense of timeless living.

It all started with a factory from the 1970's. It caught my eye because the type of styles that was used then is still used today! I just knew that this is something I want to wear but also wanted to share the same leather experience with friends, family and everyone I knew at that stage.

My love for leather and my passion for people got me to a place of selling these superior quality shoes. After hard work and support from my husband I started a Facebook page called TE FRAAI in November 2015.  As the demand grew we decided to register it as a company called FRAAI LEATHER (PTY) LTD and built an online store for easy shopping and quick referencing for current clients, but also potential clients.

The journey started with baby shoes as we, as the Martiz family, was expecting our firstborn girl.  In June 2016 I started to sell both men's and women's shoes as well.  So shoes is our core business.  We've had quite a number of requests for other leather products recently and will soon be selling other geniune leather products.  Keep your eye on our website and if you haven't signed up with your email address, we'd suggest you do this right away.  This will allow us to communicate with you in regards to our latest specials, new products and important updates.

Our heavenly Father has blessed FRAAI LEATHER so much to grow as a successful business that we've recruited resellers all over South Africa to act as FRAAI LEATHER distributors.  This way I could be a good wife and mother along with managing a good integrity driven business.

If you have a similar story to ours or if our story has inspired you, please send us an email and we'll be glad to share in the joy of your success or ideas.  Enjoy our site and if you haven't purchased any of our shoes yet, please do!  They're devine! You'll never want to wear anything else...
