Style driven by a higher social purpose…For something to be beautiful, the system that created it must also be beautiful
SOKO is an ode to many meanings of being strong.
It’s a women-led, people-first ethical jewelry brand and tech-powered manufacturing platform built to connect artisans in Kenya with the global market (what they call a virtual factory).
After significant investment, testing, and training, they recently upgraded their HQ in Nairobi to include a gold-plating lab. All their gold products are 24k gold plated brass.
They're thrilled to take their jewelry to the next level with high-quality, long-lasting gold-plated collections. Each style matches their signature brass color and tone. Gold-plating jewelry provides a more premium product with reduced tarnish rate and longer wearability without needing to polish.
Artisans working with SOKO earn nearly 5X more than an average artisan workshop.
They enable financial inclusion and believe economic sovereignty is the key to lasting impact and change. They continue to work towards reducing inequality and poverty, building a healthier environment, stronger communities through the creation of high-quality jobs with dignity and purpose.
They’re paving the way for a higher standard that benefits all stakeholders - our artisan partners and their communities, you, and our team that passionately works together to make a positive impact.
