All of us at SOKO are delighted to announce that SOKO will be manufacturing Choolips Spring/Summer 2012 collection. The ball is already rolling – it’s not all designing and creating – the logistics of getting a collection to the customer is not an easy task – there are productions schedules, importing of fabrics, finding the correct zips, quality control, stock control management and on and on.
Jo (SOKO’s founder) and Annegret (Choolips’ founder) have known each other for 6 years and they’re both so excited to finally start working together. The ethos and vision of the two companies are very closely aligned…. so watch this space!
Here is a bit about Choolips SS12 collection:
Inspiration Choolips’ Golden Coast collection is inspired by the soul of Ghana’s streets: its music and its people. Fairly traded with fabric made by local batikers in Ghana, the collection is colourful, bright and bold.
Aspiration As well as introducing craftsmanship and high quality back into fashion, Choolips‘ aim is to harmonise the mindset of producers and consumers.
Ethos Choolips’ collections are traded fairly, produced locally and have a small carbon footprint. Their beauty lies in a seamless blend of cultures, traditional crafts and innovative techniques, furthering equitable trade with each print or stitch made.
