Meet the Brand: SOKO
Oh how overjoyed I was to stumble upon this women-led, people-first ethical jewelry brand. Not only does SOKO produce beautiful jewelry pieces, but they are uniquely a tech-powered manufacturing platform built to connect artisan communities in Kenya with the global market and conscious consumers worldwide.
A little more about SOKO, from SOKO:
As a certified B-Corp since 2018, we believe in using business as a force for good to balance profit with purpose. SOKO uses mobile technology to connect marginalized Kenyan artisans which we define as high potential with low geo-economic opportunity directly to the global marketplace. We connect over 2300+ independent and distributed artisans, creating an efficient and demand responsive “virtual factory”. Unlike centralized factory production, we are using technology to support and enable the human workforce. Financial inclusion and economic sovereignty is the key to lasting impact and change.
Every piece is handcrafted with responsibly sourced materials like recycled brass, reclaimed cow horn & bone, and sustainably sourced wood.
