In light of giving better not more this Holiday season, we’ve focused on creating pieces that speak to both the lives of the wearer and the maker. Introducing the Nile Kitenge Capsule Collection!



Hand-crafted by our team in Uganda, this collection features hues of rich red, blue and yellow as a tribute to the diversity, vibrancy and beauty of Uganda’s bountiful river.


A Kitenge and Leather Bucket Bag, Market Tote, Yoga Mat Bag, and Moon Clutches (in three sizes!) make up this limited edition holiday capsule collection. What makes this capsule so special is the bold pattern of the kitenge fabric. Kitenge is an East African fabric printed by a traditional batik technique, a hand-dying process that uses a wax resist method to color the cloth.


Each piece of the collection is stitched together with extra love and care at our workshop in Kampala by our team working earnestly to overcome poverty and create change for their communities.


While our team is no stranger to leather… sandals and totes take different skill sets to create. However, Team Sseko is not short on determination and, earlier this year, we moved from crafting strictly sandals out of leather to being able to craft many different styles of bags out of leather and other fabrics (like kitenge!).
