Buy a Scarf, Build a Well

An Obakki scarf that gives back with new wells in South Sudan.

Treana Peake is the head of luxury clothing label Obakki, but she’s also a philanthropist: her Obakki Foundation focuses on providing clean water and education in Africa, particularly in war-torn South Sudan. (She’s also a past winner of our Designers of the Year awards, and this year, a judge for the awards.)

And her Obakki Foundation scarves are a simple and beautiful fundraising tool. For every 500 limited edition scarves sold—including this new shade “brick,” a gorgeous warm red—a clean water well is built in a remote village in South Sudan, so villagers no longer need to walk hours to obtain water. Since 2009, the foundation has built more than 810 wells, and brought water to over a million people.

Purchase your own at or donate direct—100 percent of all proceeds go directly to its charitable initiatives.
