My Collab with Zephyr
Varehya Pratt collaborates with Loveland based company, Zephyr Graf-X to produce a hat collection for bookstores throughout the nation. Her brand Zukente, emphasizes the importance of "Inspiring to Empower your own Individuality" while highlighting her specialty in graphical textiles. Designs inspired by prestigious patterns originated in Africa.
Secondary schools in Kenya are prohibitively expensive, leaving many children deprived of their education by eighth grade. A portion of Zukente hat proceeds are donated back to a profound charity located in Kenya called The Samburu Youth Education Fund. Their mission is to provide equitable opportunities for Samburu youth who are facing these externalities, but most importantly a chance at an education.
