Samburu Iten

Samburu Iten

This collection was inspired by traditional clothing from Kenya's diverse cultural groups.
The Samburu, a Nilotic-speaking community, are pastoralists from Northern Kenya. They are famous for their colourful, elaborate clothing and accessories. It is from this elaborate palette that we made our shoes.

To the Samburu, each colour has a meaning. Green for pasture, red for blood from their cattle (a symbol of wealth), yellow for harmony, blue means water, and white for purity. For the Iten Samburu, we took inspiration from the colours yellow, blue, and red.
