In collaboration with our artisan partners, Soko is pioneering ethical, fast fashion; delivering you fashion-forward style at affordable prices that is ethically produced with artisans from under-served communities. All products in Soko's Artisan Collection are produced in collaboration with our artisan community, often bringing several production techniques together into one design for a look that is entirely unique, beautifully handcrafted, and representative of African techniques.
Our brass wire pieces are handcrafted from locally-sourced materials. Soko artisans solder individual wire pieces then shape this framework into a wearable product by molding it on a wooden form. Each piece is buffed and polished to a glossy shine.

Mulinge has climbed the ranks from market vendor, to apprentice, to now a shop owner in his own right and in-house Soko artisan.

Redefining the aesthetics of ethical fashion, SOKO creations are inspired by architecture and traditional tribal designs, yet made to appeal to the urban woman. SOKO artisans use locally-sourced and eco-friendly materials, such as recycled brass and reclaimed cow horn and bone.
Since brass is a natural alloy it will gradually patina over time with exposure to oxygen and moisture. If you prefer a bright sheen, this effect can be removed with a quick polish. All of our pieces can be polished with a brass cleaner (we use Brasso) and a soft cloth or paper towel. To clean using ingredients you may already have at home, mix lemon juice and baking soda into a paste, rub onto surface with a cloth, then rinse off and buff dry to a shine. To care for your horn jewelry, avoid exposure to excessive moisture or sunlight. Wipe clean with a soft cloth.
Keep away from water.
