Soko, shopsoko.com, was having a launch party and the guests were thrilled to be sipping wine in Susty glasses.
Soko is Africa’s first mobile marketplace and they just released their first curated accessories collection, featuring necklaces, bracelets and earrings designed and handcrafted by skilled Kenyan artisans, made available to customers in the US, UK, EU, and Australia at www.shopsoko.com. Their mobile technology empowers artisans and consumers alike, in support of its mission to create an online marketplace where international consumers can buy unique and quality pieces directly from artisans around the world. Soko supports small scale designers who use environmentally friendly production - nearly all of the jewelry on the site has been made with upcycled or recycled materials, from necklaces made from old magazines to glass beads from melted down bottles to necklaces made of cow horn discarded by the butchers. Waste not, want not - we say no to plastic, from our jewelry to our cups! Eco-chic is sexy!
It was fun! Thanks Soko!
