Brass

Brass is a metal alloy of copper and zinc. Known for its malleable durability, brass has been used for centuries — the first example of brass jewelry dates from ancient Rome.

An affordable alternative to gold, brass allows us to produce statement pieces that have a luxurious look and feel at accessible prices.

Our favorite part? Aside from how good it looks, brass is sustainable. Today almost 90% of all brass in the world is recycled. We give materials new life by using materials acquired from local markets and vendors.

Horn & Bone

Our cow-horn and bone products are crafted from the horn of Ankole Longhorn cattle, a breed native to the Rift Valley of East Africa. SOKO artisans ethically procure this recycled material, which is a byproduct of the food industry, from nomadic tribes in Kenya and Uganda.

Our reclaimed horn has gorgeous natural variation in its color, so every piece is individual and can range from a dark lustrous black to striated natural tones.

Wood

We work with a sustainable partner to source teak off-cuts, pieces that often goes unused due to odd cuts and small sizes. At harvest, the average tree is about 50 years old, and our partner implements sustainable practices for future harvest cycles.

Silver

Our recycled brass is chrome-plated for a silver-colored finish that’s shiny, ultra-modern and tarnish resistant. During the electroplating process, we re-use the water for maximum efficiency.
