Sseko Designs Launches New Designs for Fall

I had never heard of Sseko Designs until last August when I met Genavieve Moyer and her daughter at the BlogHer #16 conference in Los Angeles. It was kind of serendipitous that we met that early morning at the The Original Pantry Cafe. I talked about my blog and how I’m just a city girl living in the country with my husband and our two furbabies. Then she talked about her blog and her life out on the farm with her husband and children.

Then Genavieve shared with me her excitement at becoming a Sseko Mentor Fellow and the good things that Sseko Designs has to offer women around the world. Her excitement spread to me, and now I’m excited to be able to share that this month, Sseko Designs is launching their new designs for Fall.

From their “design your own” leather shoes to handbags, travel accessories to jewelry, and scarves to kaftans, this Fall launch features sustainable on-trend fashions. Sseko Designs is a fashion brand based in Uganda, and they create opportunity and community for women globally. Each item is handmade in East Africa and helps send women to college.

“We believe that every woman has a dream. When she has the opportunity to pursue those dreams, we are collectively walking towards a brighter, more just and beautiful world.”

There are four categories from which you can choose: apparel, footwear, leather bags, and accessories.

The Sseko Apparel Collection features stunning and incredibly versatile items that will take you from everyday wear to your fanciest event.

The Sseko Footwear Collection features timeless sandals and shoes designed for all-day comfort. From our strappy, interchangeable Ribbon Sandals to our sleek Crossover Slides, we have an ethically made shoe that fits your style!

The Sseko Leather Bag Collection features a variety of handbags perfect for travel and everyday wear! From high-quality genuine leather weekender bags to soft leather bucket bags and totes, we have an ethically made carryall you’ll love. Every bag is made by our artisan partners in Africa.

From handcrafted brass bangles to intricately-woven scarves, the Sseko Accessory Collection features beautiful goods that will add the perfect finishing touch to your look.

Here is an excerpt of a letter from Liz Forkin Bohannon, founder of Sseko {who, with her husband, pitched Sseko Designs on Shark Tank}:

Sseko is not a charity. What we’re trying to do is create partnership, possibility and opportunity where it didn’t exist before.

And we do this by making beautiful things together. We work (hard) and we laugh and we love and we learn. And every nine months, we let go and we send these incredible women off to pursue dreams of their own.

Our vision is to create a company where every facet of our business, from production through the final sale of our stunning products, will create opportunity and community for women pursuing their dreams–both across the world and right here at home.

So we created the Sseko Fellows program to do just that. The Sseko Fellows program is a vibrant community of bright, brave and bold social entrepreneurs who are using their gifts and passions to create impact across the world and in their own backyards.

Every Sseko Fellow here in the United States is matched with a Sole Sister in Uganda. Every single dollar she sells in Sseko product helps contribute to sending her Sole Sister to University. Meanwhile, she earns an income to fund her own dreams. We call that a Win Win.

And it’s working! To date, in partnership with the Sseko Fellows, we’ve enabled 87 women in Uganda to attend University through an entirely self-sustaining financial model.”

Sseko Designs is just amazing! And don’t forget, as I mentioned earlier in this post, each order over $100 receives FREE SHIPPING. Click this link to start start your Sseko Designs experience.

There is more to come this month, featuring specific Sseko products from this Fall Launch, so stay tuned!

Yours Truly,
