I am not someone who anyone would call stylish, trendy, or fashion-forward. That is not to say I don’t have my own personal style, because I do. And it gets more defined every day. This is somewhat cliche to say, but the older I get, the more confident I am to be true to myself, and this includes what type of clothing I wear.
I am committed to the idea of supporting the people who make my clothes. Because regardless if I think I’m trendy or not, the reality is I buy clothes, and wear clothes, and how I spend my money matters. It matters to me, it matters to the environment, and it matters to the people on the receiving end of my money.
I have found a home and a newfound passion in Sseko Designs. The connection we forge between each other is unparalleled. I know personally the women who make my shoes and clothing. I can send them emails and learn about their families and their goals and dreams for the future. I know that when I make a purchase, I am directly impacting the lives of women in Uganda and promoting their college education through scholarship.
Sseko Designs also directly impacts the lives of women here in the United States. This is not a charity. We are paid well for good work, and support each other in securing a better future for ourselves and for our families. With that said, these are all affiliate links, meaning at no additional cost to you, I get paid commission if you choose to purchase.
