Year of Design
Soko, an ethical jewelry brand, was founded in Nairobi, Kenya by three women: Gwendolyn Floyd, Ella Peinovich and Catherine Mahugu. The jewelry collections are inspired by architecture and traditional tribal designs, and made with heritage techniques. The brand works with artisans in Kenya who handcraft the pieces using locally sourced and eco-friendly materials whenever possible. Soko is known for their innovative supply chain method which uses mobile phones to build relationships with independent artisan entrepreneurs. Soko’s mobile tools give the artisans access to a global network of consumers, thus expanding their business opportunities and prospects. In 2015, Soko expanded beyond Kenya’s Silicon Savannah to Silicon Valley, opening their U.S. headquarters in San Francisco.
