The history behind the Vellie

Whether it is referred to "Vellies", "Velskoene" or "Veldskoene", all share the same origin. These leather shoes were first made in the 17th century by the first Dutch settlers in South Africa. The name means "field shoe" or "skin or animal hide shoe". Either way, these shoes were made of raw hide and were used as footwear in the Great Trek by the Voortrekkers.

Behind the name

The building that currently houses Tolla se Sentrum, has a long and colourful history. It had been Municipal Offices and Town Hall for many years. Many meetings, events and weddings were held here. Later years, the Municipal Offices were moved elsewhere and the vacant historic building drew the interest of renowned story-teller Tolla van der Merwe. Read more...
