Our Wood

We offer you premium firewood naturally dried under the hot African sun. Our high-density hardwood has less than 2% moisture content which generates extreme heat and long-lasting coals. Our firewood is ideal for braais (BBQs), fire pits, pizza ovens, wood burners and closed combustion stoves.  

Whether socializing around a summer braai with your family and friends or spending a cozy winter's night in by the fireplace, we are here to ensure you never run out of Africa's favourite firewood.

Our Heritage

For centuries people have been on a journey of mastering fire, and we as South Africans were the very first humans to do so nearly a million years ago.

The mastery of fire is considered to be one of the most pivotal moments in the history of humankind, providing safety, warmth and a communal place for social interactions within the tribe.

Wherever humans have gone in the world they have carried with them the two most significant achievements of humanity, language, and fire!

From “Braaivleis” to “Shisa Nyama,” as South Africans, making fire is in our blood and we are proud to be supporting this age-old tradition with you here in the UK.

Sustainability

Our African hardwood is ethically sourced in line with the Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Forestry in Namibia.

Sekelbos (Dichrostachys cinerea) or “Sicklebush” is an alien invasive species and is therefore removed from Namibia as part of their bush encroachment control scheme (or de-bushing).

The Namibian authorities regularly visit the farms to carry out inspections and record the number of dead and living trees.

The alien invasive wood that is exported from Namibia creates thousands of jobs for local farmers, most of which live in poverty and are sole bread winners for their families.

NATURAL SHAPE

Lems are designed to mirror the natural shape of the human foot. Unlike traditional footwear products that squeeze the toes together, our toe area allows for maximum room, giving the toes ultimate freedom to wiggle and spread.

Due to the narrowness of shoes in today’s market, most of us have experienced foot deformation whether we know it or not. Lems aims to fix these problems by allowing the toes all-day comfort and the freedom to live naturally.

Combine Lems with Correct Toes to help naturally spread the toes and cure many foot ailments including bunions, neuromas, and general foot numbness.

So...

You have gone to the trouble and effort of picking the right pair of boots for your requirements. You have now broken them in and they are extremely comfortable and suit your needs perfectly. 

With just a few simple steps (no pun intended), you can help to preserve your favourite pair of boots and greatly extend their lifespan. Follow these simple guidelines to maximise the longevity of your footwear.

We recommend the use of Redback Boot Wax- it has been specifically developed for the type of water repellent leathers we use (NB not suitable for the nubuck UBCH boots). 

We recommend that you rub in the Redback Boot Wax when the leather is dry and warmed up a little. Use a cloth  to work the wax and oils into the leather and then leave to dry a little and brush vigorously to drive it into and below the leather surface.

Please bear these points in mind:

1) Never dry your boots using an artificial heat source (radiator, oven, fire etc.).

2) Make the drying out procedure take as long as possible.

3) Never force dry your boots.

4) Never store boots wet.

5) Never store boots that have not been waxed or treated first.

Drying boots out rapidly can lead to shrinkage.  Particularly in hot climes, cover the boots with a lightly dampened cloth to slow the rate of evaporation. Ensuring the leather is clean and treated regularly can in fact double or triple the lifespan of a pair of Redbacks so is well worth doing.
