About Us

OUR MISSION

Sukwa Saddle Blankets was founded to create quality Saddle Blankets for both our riders and their best friend, while also working to make the world a better place.

HOW SUKWA STARTED

Sukwa means woven in swahili. We saw a need in the market for beautifully innovative, quality Saddle Blankets, and also knew we had friends and artisans in Kenya who could create just that. We teamed up with Imani Collective - a women's economic empowerment program in Kenya - to design and produce hand-woven Saddle Blankets using the highest quality local wool and mohair sourced straight from Northern Kenyan sheep farmers. Our vision was to create a product that could inspire and empower - catering to the needs of both the rider and their horse, but also able to give back to the Imani Collective community. We are exceptionally proud of the products we've created, and honored to partner with this amazing organization.

HOW SUKWA MAKES A DIFFERENCE

For every Sukwa Saddle Blanket sold, 5% is given back to a variety of holistic programs. What does that mean? Every Saddle Blanket sold provides either 55 meals for the Imani Collective artisan that created the Blanket, or a month of schooling for one of their kids. Sukwa Saddle Blankets is dedicated to creating a beautiful product for you and making this world a better place, one Blanket at a time.
