Fair Fashion Fridays ~ Sseko Designs

Fair Fashion Fridays is a time to recognize fashion that brings awareness to worldly issues and supports worthwhile causes. For the first Fair Fashion Friday, I’m showcasing Sseko Designs.

Sseko Designs (say-ko) is a sandal and accessory company founded on the simple idea that empowering women spawns change. Sseko Designs creates opportunities for women in Uganda to earn wages so they can attend university. Due to the lack of women’s rights, higher education is a mere dream for many women in Uganda. Sseko Designs makes it a reality by employing women for the few months between secondary education (high school) and university. They will go on to become doctors, lawyers, and teachers. These women will be the influence their society needs to make lasting changes. They are the hope and the inspiration for many young girls and future Sseko dreamers.

It all started with a simple sandal design with interchangeable ribbons. It has grown now to include beautiful leather handbags, clutches, and now scarves, all handmade with materials from Uganda, Kenya, and Ethiopia (furthering the financial impact on their community.) Adding these pieces will undeniably enhance your wardrobe. Go ahead, take a peek at ssekodesigns.com!
