The Edu overalls are made from tie dyed and batiked industrial waste cotton (a new fabric, which has been ordered in excess by a garment factory). They feature coconut buttons down the centre front, a zip from the waistband down and a logo button from upcycled cow horn or coconut, hand-made in Kenya.
About This Brand

KikoRomeo’s silhouettes are effortlessly elegant, with attention to detail, they are treasured as works of art by all those who wear them.
