Silver Lining Gumboots have reached international success and expanded into New Zealand...

Our story

Hi I'm Jane, I am the Director of Blue Baobab New Zealand Limited. We are a small business in New Zealand, which came about after we saw an opportunity to import Silver Lining Gumboots from South Africa.  Blue Baobab NZ has the sole distribution rights for Silver Lining Gumboots in NZ. 

Silver Lining Gumboots are luxury gumboots, designed and manufactured in South Africa by two amazing women entrepreneurs, Liz and Cally, who are looking to improve the comfort and style of woman’s gumboots worldwide and make them a staple in every woman’s wardrobe.

Their manufacturer works with what they call a cradle-to-grave recycling system.  Their black gumboots are made from 100% recycled material.  They take old pieces of PVC from the electrical, agricultural and medical industries, grind them into little granules and melt those down to make their black gumboots. 

In 2021 they launched their first colour product:  yellow gumboots with black soles.  The yellow uppers are made of virgin PVC, which can be recycled at the end of the boots’ lifespan. 2022 was the Forest Green George and Knysna Gumboots and it's exciting waiting to hear what colour will be revealed for 2023!

We are so excited to be part of their international success and wholeheartly agree with their mantra of ridding the world of gross gumboots! We are thrilled that they are kind on our environment and are a sustainable fashion boot, which any women can be proud to wear!

"Other than the stunning colour, I would say the most noticeable first impression would have to be the feeling of them. The quality is genuinely incredible. The jacket is lined with a very soft striped cotton fabric. The boots are made well and you can tell they're the kind that will last years even with regular use!" Millie Thompson - Canterbury
"Loving my new boots, they are comfortable, practical and stylish - everything I could ask for in a gumboot - I'm so grateful!I think it is wonderful that they are made from recycled PVC.  I wear my gumboots on the farm, riding my horse, in the cowshed and the garden, not to mention on the sports field sideline!!"
