Sammy Ethiopia Revamping Luxury & Social Justice

The brand was launched in 2008 and is based in Addis?Ababa, Ethiopia. Co?founders Sammy Abdella and Holly Hikido’s main goal when creating the brand was to provide employment and a solid market for the many artisans in Abdella’s home country. Since it’s introduction, Sammy Ethiopia’s workforce has grown from 50 employees to close to 400 today.

They produces specialty textile items handmade by the Ethiopian employees that showcase their artisan skills through vibrant, environmentally friendly scarves and leather goods.  Not only are the products made with the environment in mind but also t represent the beauty of Ethiopia and the young, talented artisans.
