WE ARE YOUR STYLISTS
Have been from day one, you just didn’t know it.

Bathu was founded in 2015 by Theo Baloyi with the sole aim to tell a proudly untold South African township story to the world. Bathu is a common universal slang word mostly used in townships across South Africa in referral to any type of shoe, this word has existed in South African township for decades now. Theo Baloyi identified a niche in the retail business to conceptualize and establish a shoe brand around the commonly used universal word with a deep sense of meaning in the black society and tell this beautiful untold story to the world.
