"This story is one of hope, of beauty, of joy and strength.” - Sseko Designs

While working with Pepper and Paul over the past few months, one of the biggest topics of conversation has been conscious consumerism. It’s easy to overlook a brands larger message when strutting through Soho popping into your favorite shops, but sometimes it’s necessary to ask: how are they giving back? How are these brands being responsible? 

Sseko Designs is a brand that’s got it right. The brand works with women in poverty to provide scholarships for those who wish to continue on to University, as well as employing a team of 45 women in Uganda. 

Of course a simple blog post can’t do this cause justice. If you’re interested in learning more, head over to the Sseko site to hear more about “The Sseko Story.”
