Who We Are
Welcome to The Soko Edit, a place for you to discover and shop female-founded brands from around the world.
Inspired by the joy of browsing local boutiques for hidden treasures, we chose the name “soko”, which means marketplace in Swahili. Think of shopping with us as a whistle-stop tour around artisanal markets of the world. We hope discovering the small brands we feature brings you as much joy as it brought us when we first stumbled upon them.
Why Shop With Us?
To empower female entrepreneurs by supporting their small businesses.
To discover unique products by exploring the stories, people and cultures behind brands from all corners of the world.
To shop products from around the world in one order. We hold all our stock so you can place one order and it gets to you all at once, as quickly as possible.
To help our charity partner. We donate a portion of our profits to The Pad Project, and have partnered with them since day one. Read more about them here.
To do your bit for the planet. Online ordering is never as green as shopping at your local market, but we make every effort to ensure we are being as environmentally friendly as possible. Right down to our compostable mailers!
To celebrate diversity. The different cultural influences from the entrepreneurs we partner with make for more dynamic and open conversation where we can continuously learn from each other and better our community.
