ASOS MADE IN KENYA is the newest limited-edition unisex collection created in partnership with SOKO Kenya, an ethical clothing manufacturer in Nairobi that actively works against environmental issues within the country. The company works alongside the organization Fashion Revolution to help empower local female artisans to build revenue and independence using their talents.
SOKO Kenya’s partnership with ASOS began in 2010 with different seasonal collections and has featured the work of local artist Wini Awuondo.

Like many others in the fashion industry, we have taken the decision to shift our focus with a team in the factory and the Community Trust to manufacturing masks. Our washable sanitary pad team are using a mixture of up cycled fabric and offcuts from our factory and the factory team are using our t shirt offcuts, which may not be medical standard but are better than nothing, particularly when there is a shortage due to the current crisis. We hope to keep producing these as long as there is a need, maintaining a steady income for all of the team that are involved, which unfortunately many people in Kenya can not currently count on.
