There are a variety of reasons we felt it fitting to headline Kenya for our first collection at Soko.
Of the most obvious, it is where our roots lie; but that does not overshadow all of the innovative ethical fashion designs that are coming out of Kenya. The vibrant colors, geometric shapes, and clean lines of Kenyan fabrics and accessories, have been spotted from high fashion to street fashion.
The Kenya Collection at Soko highlights some of the best designs discovered in our marketplace. Our featured artisans draw inspiration from their heritage, and transform it into a look that is cross-culturally modern and simplistic. And to top it off, they have refined their crafts using upcycled materials such as cow horn, glass, wood, aluminum, and brass.
So keep an eye out for Kenya, as they are a force to be reckoned with on the ethical fashion forefront.
