KOY Clothing is run by two brothers, Alastair & Jimmy Scott.
The brothers we raised in Africa and now have an ambition to help support the indigenous cultures of Kenya through luxury fashion.
Growing up in East Africa and going to school in the UK put them in a unique position to incorporate both worlds, and help support the country they grew to love.
Surrounded by beautiful landscapes, fascinating cultures and the stunning fabrics used by the Kenyan people, together with the UK’s quintessential fashions and lifestyles, presented them with an exciting opportunity to combine authentic African fabric with luxury lifestyle.
Since the official launch of KOY Clothing in December 2016, they have learned learned alot.
“The more we learned about cultural influences in fashion, we realised that many brands around the world use cultural inspirations within their designs. Sadly, not all of those brands give recognition to the cultures which inspired them.”
“ This was a chance for us to try and change this mindset and demonstrate to others the value of cultural inspiration. We do this by giving 5% of every purchase to projects within the communities of Kenya that our products are inspired by,”said Alistair.
