Sseko Designs

Sseko Designs is a fashion brand based in Uganda. In addition to handbags and accessories, they make beautiful leather sandals with interchangeable fabric straps that can be styled in hundreds of ways.

Sseko began as a way to generate income for high potential, talented young women to continue on to university. And it is working! Every woman who has graduated from Sseko is currently pursuing her college degree or has graduated from university and is on her way to making our world a more beautiful place.

In addition to their university-bound team, Sseko also employs women from all walks of life. By creating an environment of dignity, honor and dedication, Sseko Designs provides the opportunity for women in East Africa to end the cycle of poverty and create a more equitable society.

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

In addition to their sandals, accessories and straps that are all made in their workshop in Uganda, Sseko partners with existing artisan groups in East Africa to produce exquisitely crafted goods. Currently partnering with organizations in Kenya and Ethiopia who produce their woven textiles and fine leather goods. These additional products help them contribute to their goal of growing East African economies through trade and employment. In addition, the revenue generated through these lines allows them to expand our mission to educate and empower women through employment, training and scholarships. 

Every Sseko has a story.
