Meet Our Production Team - new
From day one, our motivating priority has been to create good, sustainable jobs in Kenya. We're so proud to be working with a production partner that shares these values and proves that it's possible to produce really well made clothing at scale while prioritizing employee well-being and being thoughtful about environmental sustainability and community outreach.
Meet our production partner, SOKO Kenya! Based in Kikambala on the Kenyan coast, they are an ethical manufacturer that truly embraces a fair, kind and transparent work culture. In addition to paying above living wages, SOKO Kenya provides employees with paid leave and stipends for family emergencies, free pre-primary childcare for all employees with children from ages 2-4, daily mid-morning tea and midday lunch, and clear, outlined processes for job advancement. These values extend to the workspace itself, which is open, airy and bright.
We believe that environmental sustainability and economic sustainability go hand-in-hand, and we're excited to have a partner in SOKO Kenya that is aligned on this vision. A rainwater catchment system supplies water for the entire factory, including all of our fabric washing. Solar panels supply 25% of the power for the entire factory, taking advantage of the beautiful coastal Kenyan sunshine!
It's a privilege to work with SOKO Kenya, and they prove day after day that ethical, sustainable manufacturing is possible when putting people and community first, and that the learning never stops in the effort to do good and do better!
