AN ETHICAL APPROACH.
We are a clothing manufacturer that has spent the past 10 years scaling an organisation that puts people, communities and life at the heart of everything we do.
We have always believed in equality and quality of life for all, and that with these values at our core, we can produce quality garments which improve the quality of life for employees and customers alike.
We are a people first company, investing in the skills of our team, creating price structures that fairly remunerate our employees so they and their families can thrive, and engaging with partners to bring education and skills to the wider community via our Community Trust and Kujuwa Initiative.
Through solar panels, rain water collection and waste up cycling we are committed to ensure our way of working is enhancing life, adding value to customers and minimising our environmental footprint.
SO HOW DO WE WORK?
There are two key parts to SOKO Kenya:
SOKO Factory — the commercial arm, partnering with designers and fashion brands across the globe to deliver a more sustainable future.
SOKO Community Trust — strives to develop and enhance the social, environmental and economic skills of local communities, through a variety of workshops and training. The Community Trust also runs the Stitching Academy and our female sexual health programme, the Kujuwa Initiative.
WHO DO WE WORK WITH?
We work with fashion brands and retailers from around the world, bringing their vision of high quality beautiful garments to life. Some of these clients also support our Community Trust work and some of our Community Trust supporters and funders just appreciate what we do. If you are interested in partnering with us, we’d love to speak with you.
The world is changing for the better and our manufacturing and community work directly supports the aspirations set out in UN’s sustainable development goals around education, empowering women, creating job opportunities and managing waste.
But, our vision and work doesn’t end there, SOKO Kenya also runs the Kujuwa Initiative, a social enterprise tackling fundamental misunderstanding and issues around women’s health.
