We are a brand that believes in people over product. Although we love fashion and believe it is a beautiful way to express ourselves, our brand is not simply about products. We believe in partnership, collaboration, a sustainable lifestyle, progress over perfect, and always striving to know more and do better.
For us, our products represent the world we want to live in and the selves we want to be. A little bit slower, more thoughtful, intentional, high quality, meaningful, and timelessly beautiful...a beauty not measured by anyone else's standards but our own.
We choose to work with our partners in East Africa because we value their craftsmanship, commitment to ethical practices, and our desire to be globally-minded and socially responsible fashion brand.
We partner with extremely skilled artisans in Kenya and Tanzania. Every part of our supply chain is important to us, and we are very proud that all of our materials, from the brass hardware to the leather are both locally and ethically sourced. No animals were harmed or killed for fashion, as we only use leather that is a byproduct of the meat industry, an integral part of the local economy. We partner with local tanneries in Nairobi who pay their workers fairly as well. Because of this, we often end up paying more for leather than other companies, but this is something we feel very strongly about!
