How do you define what you do?
Some clients want perfection, but art can not be perfect and perfection isn't art - between the two there is a place of natural beauty that I seek.
How did start to make work with wood?
My friend made beach house furniture on his farm in the over-berg and I always spend time on the farm and got hooked to creating things out of wood and started creating my own pieces.
What is your relation to the material you are working with?
Well first of all I would like to know where the wood is coming from and if the wood is sustainable. If it's a reclaimed wood I like to bring back new life in it. 
After that there are rules to working with wood but I find the beauty in the grain of each piece and try and show it off.
Most interesting things that defines you are?
Always exploring and finding new places.
Your lucky charm is:
my beautiful human. 
Prized possession: 
nothing, but her.
 What is your favorite place and why?:
Well it's hands down a small beach town on the east coast of Southern Africa called 
Arniston. I spent most of my childhood out there exploring with some of my best mates till this day.
What is your favorite book and why?:
Books... I love coffee table books with awesome images but there is this on book I started reading called (Breath) it was all about some kids in a small village exploring there surroundings and then finding the ocean and expressing all there love to surf big waves. It's just super inspiring and I said I will finish the last few pages when I go to there location of there story.
Your dream dinner party would be with?:
Would definitely be with all my good mates on a table that we build together on the beach or in a forest somewhere. And a big bad ass fire with lots of red wine and a braai that's what we call a BBQ
In another life, you’d be…
a bird of prey or a otter.
One wish for the gold fish:
Don't worry I don't fish for gold fish.
Work is:
The future will be:
awesome without political bull shit.

Sizing Chart

This is the BAABUK sizing chart for our sneaker/urban wooler collection

Choosing the right shoes online can be difficult, in addition to regular sizing, we offer additional measurements in the chart below so that you can measure your foot to get the perfect fit.

Note that our shoes are made of wool. Wool is a stretchable material that will adapt itself to your foot. I general we recommend that if you have a larger feet or if you are in between two sizes  to take the size above (e.g EU 42 1/2 -> 43).

Size chart :

EU Size

Lengths (mm)

Girth (mm)



In order to choose your perfect pair just measure the length and girth of your feet.

To measure the length you can put your feet on a with page of paper and draw the line in front and at the back of your feet (the highest point at the front and at the back). The length can vary between 1 and 2 mm. To measure the girth you will circle your feet at the ball part. Check this link how to measure the ball girth.

If your feet is large we suggest that you choose the size above that is matching to the girth given in our chart.

The pictures below will help you with these measurements :

Please not that if the size you choose doesn't fit you perfectly you can exchange your shoes.

Slipper Sizing:

The slipper are hand-felted in one piece without any stitching. The advantage of these kind of slippers is that with the time, your feel will continue to felt the slippers and they will take the shape of your feet.

We have cut the opening of the shoes a little bit tighter. For the kids and female sizes we have cut a litle 'V' cut to make it easier to entre the shoe. In case you feel its still too tight, just cut with a scisor the 'V' a little bit bigger. That is only possible with hand-felted wool slippers.

Here the sizing conversation between the EU, US and UK for the slippers.

Conditions : Please contact us if you want to exchange the shoes. Once we have validate your request you can ship us the unused shoe (on your charges). We will ship you back a new pair (on our charges).
