Eliza Christoph Luxury, an ethical fashion brand launched to embody Kenyan sensibility with color, pattern and sustainability
NEW YORK, May 18, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Sleek, urban, sophisticated, vibrant and inspired, Eliza Christoph is stepping into the air of fashion on a mission. Founded by Kenya-born New York-based Liz Njoroge, the newly launched brand is a tribute to her homeland and a high-end nod to her improvement. Ready to empower women in Kenya by creating jobs for skilled artisans and supporting their training, the brand offers more than sustainable and ethical luxury. Eliza Christoph offers handcrafted, principled clothing and accessories that wholeheartedly embraces the vibrant prints that are the spirit of Kenya. For clothing and accessories made outside Africa, the brand donates part of the profits to the communities where their artisans live and work.
Classically designed, the timeless approach to the composition of each garment is as young as it is elegant. The pieces blend unique, vibrant prints with timeless, versatile silhouettes to create luxe staples that add effortless sophistication to any closet. The first collection includes shirt dresses, skirts and silk scarves. The dresses are made of Dutch wax printed fabrics and Italian cotton poplin with a unique design and feel. The skirts are made from the same cotton poplin and the scarves are 100% Italian silk.
Double-sided Dutch wax fabric is printed in rich colors with a labor-intensive technique that applies wax resin before submerging the fabric in the dye. For cotton poplin prints, the brand created their own unique print designs inspired by historic African prints and the natural beauty of Africa. The bold prints combine the founder’s love for her country of origin with her passion for modern and contemporary art.
Eliza Christoph silk scarves combine art and luxury in a delicious silk scarf. Uniquely designed, the scarf prints are hand painted and digitally designed to represent the beautiful Kenyan sights and experiences. The scarves are made and printed in Italy on 100% silk and finished with hand rolled edges for a refined look.
Produced on a non-seasonal schedule in limited series, the garments are hand inspected for perfection. In line with their mission, Eliza Christoph will continue to provide financial support to the African communities that inspire their collections.
