Brass is a metal alloy of copper and zinc. Known for its durability and workability, brass has been used for centuries — the first example of brass jewelry dates from ancient Rome. Our favorite part? Aside from how good it looks, brass is sustainable! Today almost 90% of all brass in the world is recycled.
An affordable alternative to gold, brass allows us to produce statement pieces that have a luxurious look and feel, at accessible prices. We use solid brass, ensuring that every piece we make is a long-lasting heirloom. Since we don’t use plating over a base metal, our products are easy to clean, and you don’t need to worry about the color wearing off.
All of our cow-horn 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. Reclaimed horn has gorgeous natural variation in its color, so every piece is individual as a result and can range from a dark lustrous black to striated natural tones.
Remove jewelry before participating
in physical activity or going to bed.
Store your jewelry in a cloth bag
away from natural sunlight and heat.
For brass: use a gentle metal polisher and a
soft cloth to remove tarnish and restore luster.
Our materials don't mix well with moisture.
Avoid contact with water, lotion and perfume.
Since brass is a natural alloy it will gradually patina over time with exposure to oxygen and moisture. If you prefer a bright sheen, this effect can be achieved with a quick polish. All of our pieces can be polished with a brass cleaner (we use Brasso) and a soft cloth or paper towel. To clean using ingredients you may already have at home, mix lemon juice and baking soda into a paste, rub onto surface with a cloth, then rinse off and buff dry to a shine. To care for your horn jewelry, avoid exposure to excessive moisture or sunlight. Wipe clean with a soft cloth.
