JULIA PIPPITT

I started working for IKURU in September 2015 to help Sarah with a fundraiser and I've been on board ever since! My role at IKURU has grown very organically and because of the small team here in the US, I handle many different parts of the brand. Though I didn't study Fashion Design, but rather International Development, my childhood in West Africa left me with a love for African wax prints and colorful textiles. I continue to be inspired everyday by what IKURU is doing- giving the women in the program a chance to succeed economically while providing a product that customers can trust was made ethically.
