Bethlehem Tilahun Alemu  began soleRebels  in 2004 as an idea: to bring jobs to the community, Zenabwork , a small community  in addis ababa , ethiopia, a place where there literally were none  .  

soleRebels brand is being sold by major online footwear leaders like  Endless,  AMAZON.COM   and the USA’S #1 sandal retailer  FLIP FLOP SHOPS . Furthermore, the shoes are being enjoyed by people in over 10 countries around the world.

The shoes are eco-sensible and handcrafted by local artisans. They are created from recycled car tire soles  and an array of recycled and sustainable ingredients like hand spun + hand loomed organic fabrics and a palette of unique natural fibers including organic  pure abyssinian jutes  and PURE Abyssinian KOBA.

soleRebels has  recreated  and re-imagined  the traditional “selate” and “barabasso”  shoes , a recycled  car tire  soled shoe that has existed in Ethiopia for  a LONG time  [ in fact it was THE footwear from  back in the day when the ORIGINAL  “soleRebels” fought off the invading forces and kept Ethiopia as  the only African nation to never be colonized!]
