Soko is a socially responsible jewelry business based in San Francisco, California as well as Nairobi, Kenya. The three founders– Gwendolyn Floyd, Ella Peinovich and Catherine Mahugu– met in Nairobi, Kenya just 4 years ago. They bonded over their passion for fairer fashion and innovative business practices. Together, the trio created relationships with skilled artisans in order to bring jewelry that doesn’t skimp on style or sustainability. Through their expert operations, Soko is able to provide fashionable statement jewelry at accessible prices, all while keeping quality high. Soko’s name comes from the word’s translational in Swahili, the native language of Kenya, which is ‘market.’ This title is fitting for a B-Corp Certified company which hopes to develop a marketplace for ethical innovation.
