With rigor and sacrifice, these
communities honor their cultural
heritage through diverse

expressions of self

An Inherited
Appreciation

of the human form passed on from generation to generation

Bold compositions bring together the strength of simple design and the confidence and beauty of the wearer

“The people of the
Omo Valley’s preserved
sense of self expression
is etched deeply into the
fabric of their identity. I
found their traditions
to have an undeniable allure
- especially because of their
persistence in keeping
their culture alive to pass
onto the next generations.”
