ECO-FASHION IS AT THE HEART OF THE BRAND. AS AN ETHICAL AND SUSTAINABLE FASHION BRAND, WE ARE COMMITTED TO SUPPORTING OUR LOCAL COMMUNITY AND SOURCING ETHICAL PRODUCTS THROUGHOUT OUR DESIGN AND PRODUCTION PROCESS.
RECYCLING FEATHERS - THE FLY FISHING INDUSTRY
We work closely with the fly-tying community in Kenya by recycling feathers deemed unusable or simply the off cuts. Fly tying is an age-old art that requires delicate craftsmanship & skill, emphasizing on quality & attention to detail.
RECYCLING FEATHERS - BYPRODUCT FROM THE CHICKEN INDUSTRY
Cockerel or chicken feathers are sourced, fumigated and dyed from the local Kenyan market.
By locally outsourcing feathers that are a bi-product from the chicken industry, we contribute to the livelihoods of the individuals who collect the feathers and support their collective vision to recycle materials into further value. Sourcing these types of feathers require time, patience and quality control.
RECYCLED PAPER BAGS PACKAGING - VIVID GENERATION AFRIKA SOCIETY
We source gift bags from the Vivid Generation Afrika Society, a community-based project in Nairobi that started making handmade paper bags from recycled materials in 2001.
The projects main objective is to offer life opportunities to street kids, vulnerable children and drug addicts by reclaiming their basic rights and creating economic empowerment. Leonard manages the project and trains the youth participants to design silkscreened eco-friendly gift bags, business cards, T-shirts etc. Leonard prides himself on efficiency, promptness and delivery.
