Lalesso was formed by co-designers Olivia Kennaway and Alice Heusser after a holiday to Lamu Island off the north coast of Kenya. Both Olivia and Alice are children of Africa and have been wrapped in its beautiful fabrics since birth. After studying fashion design together in Cape Town the pair were impelled to harness the magical beauty of the East African ‘khanga’, also known as ‘lesso’ to create vibrant and care free summer fashion. Lalesso lends it’s support to the environment and is one of the first totally carbon zero fashion brands in this world today. Climate change is one of the biggest issues currently facing humanity and our planet and without the contribution of individuals and businesses, no matter how big or small, it poses an ever looming threat to our future.
