Meet Sharon: Sseko Seamstress

Sharon is the leader of our ribbon sandal strap team and a talented seamstress. She is a quick-learner, diligent with all the work she’s given. She’s the type of person who makes your spirit feel happy from talking to her, and at the end of each interaction, you just want to hug her.

Sharon is incredibly loving and generous to her family and friends and is a joy to have around. She’s said that “keeping quiet makes me sick,” so if you ever need a good chat, Sharon is your girl.

Meet the trendsetter, Bre!

You may have heard the saying “Every purchase you make is like casting a vote for the type of world you want to live in.” As Bre sees it: “You wake up in the morning with 2 decisions: what you’re going to eat, and what you’re going to wear.
