Esther and Petronilla (Petro) are Soko's in-house artisan experts, taking our exclusive collections from design into realization. Esther & Petro have a very versatile skill set and a passion for their craft. They met in Nairobi after leaving their village homes to pursue jewelry making. However, recently they were forced to close down their own workshops due to inconsistent local demand - as tourism has recently slowed in Kenya, so have their orders. Now, due to their consistent work at Soko, they are able to distribute work to other members of their community. When asked what they hope for from their work, Petro says, "I would love very much to expand the work so that I can help those less fortunate to be able to feed themselves." Esther added, "I hope that the work will expand to create employment for others and that I will do something that I will be remembered for."
