Soko Awarded the Mark of Positive Living

It is with great pleasure that Positive Luxury welcomes Soko as a positive brand of 2013.

At Positive Luxury, our vision for the future is a world where people and the environment prosper together – where companies and brands are part of the solution. Soko is a brand that we feel completely embody this ethos by creating opportunities for women all over the world, no matter what their location, background or poverty status .

Fashioning a better world

Soko is a company that was built by women for women, using mobile technology to showcase beautiful artisan jewellery from all over the globe. The Soko solution cuts out the middleman so that each craftsman receives a high percentage of the profit without the need for a computer or bank account. The three founders, Ella, Gwendolyn and Catherine met in Nairobi, Kenya, where they were united behind the belief that technology can empower women, connect markets and foster opportunities that change lives.

“It is a privilege to work with a company that is championing women from all over the world, creating positive and innovative opportunities  to readdress the social and economic imbalance” says Founder and CEO of Positive Luxury, Diana Verde Nieto.
