I’m excited to share the 2nd installment of our new Fashion with Compassion series with you!

Today I’m highlighting Sseko Designs (pronounced “say-ko”), a sandal company based in Uganda. They make beautiful leather sandals with interchangeable straps that can be styled dozens of ways. Sseko employs a talented team of promising young women while providing them with university tuition while also contributing to the overall economic development of Uganda.

My hubs Paul and I had the joy of hosting the smart, talented, beautiful and hilarious Founder Liz and her husband Ben a few summers ago when they came out for their road trip! They are a truly an unforgettable couple – inspiring and sooo much fun to be with. Here’s Liz with some of the designers:

The straps are totally interchangeable (shop straps here) and you can wear them a hundred different ways so it’s like having a new pair every time you wear them…and they are so boho-chic! They even have a special wedding collection.

But wait, there’s more—Sseko is celebrating their 3rd birthday and are offering a killer birthday package which includes 1 pair of soles and 3 pairs of straps in a bag + free shipping. Use the code “birthdaylove” and tell them Wonderfully Made sent you!

Besides having fabulous looking feet, you can wear your Ssekos proudly knowing your purchase helps support the education and empowerment of the beautiful Ugandan women who make them.

Have you ever heard of Sseko Sandals? What do you think of them?
