“RoHo” in Swahili means spirit and kindness and that inspires everything we do. We are committed to producing exceptional, ethically made goods; to honoring the craftsmanship and quality of life of our artisans; and to creating the kind of pieces that our customers love to own and are proud to wear. From hand-beaded sandals to our signature cowhide bags and custom home goods, we offer beautiful, high-quality pieces that empower people through dignified work.
It all started when RoHo founder Caleigh Hernandez fell in love with a pair of beaded leather sandals in a craft market in East Africa. That one pair of shoes inspired a year-long quest to source the best quality sandals in the area and then find a way to bring them to a global marketplace. After months of searching, she landed in coastal Kenya and met Lydia and her 42 remarkable artisans. Since then RoHo has continued to grow, and now works with four artisan groups across Kenya while expanding online and into independent stores across the country.
