The Ethical Sustainable Shoes Footwear Brand

“RoHo” in Swahili means spirit and kindness, which inspires everything they do.

What does it mean to be a sustainable shoe brand?

Jasmine Owens from Ethical Consumer Research Association explains what consumers should consider when looking for ethical shoes: "Do they talk about the environment? The shoe industry regularly uses toxic chemicals and non-biodegradable materials. Find a company that carefully selects materials with the environment in mind."

It's important for the customers to know where shoes and their materials are made as these are big factors in carbon emissions. According to Jennifer Chu, from MIT News Office, "The majority of shoes in the world are manufactured in China where coal is the dominant source of electricity."

However, RoHo Goods is committed to being a sustainable shoe brand by producing exceptional, ethically made goods, honoring their artisans' craftsmanship and quality of life, and creating the kind of pieces that customers love to own and are proud to wear. 

From hand-beaded sandals to our signature cowhide bags and custom home goods, RoHo Goods offer beautiful, high-quality pieces that empower people through dignified work. 

It all started with ethical shoes.

When RoHo founder Caleigh Hernandez fell in love with a pair of beaded leather sandals in a craft market in East Africa, that one pair of shoes inspired a year-long quest to source the best quality sandals in the area and then find a way to bring them to a global marketplace.

After months of searching to develop environmentally friendly shoes.

She landed in coastal Kenya and met Lydia and her 42 remarkable artisans. While Caleigh’s Swahili and Lydia’s English weren’t perfect, they found a common language in their love for hand-beaded shoes and developed a vision for RoHo. The longer Caleigh spent with the artisans in their community, the greater her motivation to make a lasting change in the lives of these talented people and bring their exceptional craftsmanship to a broader audience.

 Since then

RoHo has continued to grow and now works with four artisan groups across Kenya while expanding online and into independent stores across the country. Just like Caleigh, first, RoHo's customers fall in love with the goods, and then with how they are made and who they are made by.

Kenya has a population of 44 million people, over 40% of which live below the poverty line. Unemployment rates are high, especially among women and other marginalized groups. Consistent and fair-paying work is even harder to come by.RoHo has partnered with four artisan groups across Kenya to create consistent, fair-paying work for our artisans, most of whom are women. Providing quality jobs to skilled artisans is key to supporting community development. Employment for our artisans means more than just a paycheck—it creates opportunities and stability in a household, supporting not just our artisans but their families as well—an opportunity to invest in the futures of our artisans' children.
