"Sseko Ribbon Sandals are produced in Uganda and help enable young women to attend university. Sseko hires academically gifted young women during the nine month gap between secondary school and university to earn money that will go directly towards their education. At the end of their nine month term, Sseko will match 100% of their savings with a college scholarship."

Buying and wearing the Sseko Ribbon Sandals directly impacts the life of a woman in Uganda, opening doors of opportunity to work, to succeed, to earn and save, to end the cycle of poverty.

"Sseko is not a charity," says founder Liz Forkin Bohannon in a letter. "What we’re trying to do is create partnership, possibility and opportunity where it didn’t exist before. And we do this by making beautiful things together. We work (hard) and we laugh and we love and we learn. And every nine months, we let go and we send these incredible women off to pursue dreams of their own."

What better way to walk through life than with confidence in your purchase, in your product, and in your fashion?

We love what Sseko stands for, the women they empower, and their awesome products. It is our hope to bring in more Sseko products in the coming weeks and months, as we see our vision for the store come to life. We hope to support women on the local and global level through collaborations with local artisans, consignment (not going anywhere!), and global artisans and mission-based brands, like Sseko Designs.

Stop by the shop to pick up your own Sseko Ribbon Sandals, and empower women like Ester to achieve their dreams and overcome poverty! Learn ways to tie these fun sandals over on the Sseko site.

On Saturday, April 4, we premiered our new collaboration with Prosperity Candle by displaying a dozen of their popular scents. At the end of the day, we had four candles left.

The impact you makeNavigationTile_impact2 when purchasing a Prosperity Candle is great:

Every candle purchased helps provide a living wage for the women of Prosperity Candle, who have recently resettled from refugee camps and are working to build a brighter future for themselves and their families in the United States.

The candle tins are colorfully decorated with inspirational quotes by women from around the world as well as the name of the woman who made that specific candle. The candles are handpoured soy blend candles in a travel size tin. We burned a sample candle in the store all day Saturday and were amazed by the radiant fragrance of the candle.

Stop by the shop to pick up your own Prosperity Candle and learn about the woman who made it!

Introducing Prosperity Candles into the shop and seeing them fly off the shelf was a huge affirmation of our vision for the store:

  1. To support women on the local and global level through collaborations with local artisans and global mission-based brands (such as Prosperity Candle).
  2. To feature home decor at Darling, in addition to our women's clothing and accessories, new and consigned.

We can't wait to introduce more brands like Prosperity Candle into Darling and share them with our customers.
