Koy Clothing

Growing up in Kenya…

KOY Clothing was founded by two brothers, Alastair and Jimmy Scott who grew up in Kenya.

Growing up in Africa is an experience like no other. It shapes and develops you in a certain way. Imagine having a garden that never ends, full of life, full of colour and untapped potential. As kids we are naive and innocent, feeling you can play forever in this peaceful garden, but as you get older you realise it’s not quite as harmonious as you once thought.

Our Promise was born…

KOY Clothing was officially incorporated as a business in December 2016 and from the moment our first blazer was stitched, we made a promise, a promise we intend to deliver on…

Africa has so much to offer and while many choose to give back to it, there are some who choose to exploit it. It is our promise to value what this stunning continent has given us. We do this by giving 5% of all sales (not profits) to projects within Kenyan communities, helping the people, the place and the wildlife.

2017 – Investments/Events

Midway through 2017 we received investment from a hedge fund which enabled Jimmy and Alastair to quit their full-time jobs and pursue their dream.

We did our first ever trade stand at Polo in the Park, London, and we haven’t looked back since…

 

2020 – The future…

It is our ultimate goal to have as many of our products made in Kenya as possible, as we believe this is the best way we can support Kenya and its economy…
