Sseko Designs is an ethical fashion brand based in Uganda. In addition to handbags and accessories, they make beautiful leather sandals with interchangeable fabric straps that can be styled in hundreds of ways.
Sseko began as a way to generate income for high potential, talented young women to continue on to university. And it is working! Every woman who has graduated from Sseko is currently pursuing her college degree or has graduated from university and is on her way to making our world a more beautiful place.
In addition to their sandals, accessories and straps that are all made in our workshop in Uganda, Sseko partners with existing artisan groups in East Africa to produce exquisitely crafted goods. They’re currently partnering with organizations in Kenya and Ethiopia who produce our woven textiles and fine leather goods. These additional products help us contribute to our goal of growing East African economies through trade and employment. In addition, the revenue generated through these lines allows us to expand our mission to educate and empower women through employment, training and scholarships.
Every Sseko has a story.
