New York-based Eliza Christoph is a sustainable and ethical luxury fashion brand with the mission of creating the world's most exquisite clothing and accessories while improving women's livelihoods in Kenya and other African countries. Founders Elizabeth (Liz) Njoroge, Creative Director, and Christopher Ramsey, Chief Executive Officer, launched Eliza Christoph after years of travel, research, and development in Africa.
Founder and Creative Director Liz Njoroge is inspired by her upbringing in Nairobi, Kenya, where women wear vibrant prints and sophisticated clothing for everyday life and celebrations. Having spent her childhood in Nairobi, Kenya, and later in New York City, U.S., Liz's designs blend traditional African print inspirations with New York City modernism. She mixes unique, vibrant prints with timeless and versatile silhouettes to create luxury staples that add effortless sophistication to any closet.
At its company-owned factory in Nairobi, Kenya, Eliza Christoph employs highly skilled African artisans, paid a fair wage and benefits, to handcraft their luxury clothing. Many pieces' unique detailing is made possible by artisans' traditional hand-stitching techniques and careful craftsmanship. For clothing and accessories made in Italy, a portion of the profits go back to the communities where Eliza Christoph's artisans live and work.
The company carefully chooses its partners for their environmentally sustainable practices.
