We believe an object can elevate both beholder and maker. In a world of mass-produced goods, we offer artisan-made home and apparel crafted in fair-trade environments from around the globe. We strive to live fully, slow down to enjoy life’s little luxuries, and choose everyday to create a world connecting maker, owner and earth.
We traveled South to work with Peru's infamous alpaca to find the best socks the world has to offer. We partnered with local Peruvian farmers and makers to gather these luxury materials and created a series of custom-made, premium socks for all ages.
Peruvian alpaca is a natural, technical fiber with remarkable thermal properties. Alpaca allows air circulation on warm days, and heat insulation on cool days. In this way, alpaca is able to prevent sweating in warmer weather, and contain heat in colder weather.
Alpaca is lightweight, silky-smooth, hypoallergenic, non-itchy, incredibly soft, and stronger than mohair. As a bonus, alpaca is one of the Earth's most sustainable fibers to make, because alpacas and alpaca fiber harvesting has a very low environmental impact.
We hope you find joy and comfort in our quality collection, and that Poko socks allow your feet to feel as cared for as they surely deserve.
