Gilded Paddle Hoops - Black Cow Horn

Regular price $129.00 Sale price$100.00 Save $29.00
Tax included.

The Gilded Paddle Hoops are the statement earring of the season. The stunning hoops feature an open-ended, flat hoop silhouette wrapped in a luxe brass setting.

The Gilded Paddle Hoops are handcrafted in recycled brass and ethically sourced cow horn. As they are made from natural materials, the Gilded Paddle Hoops are one-of-a-kind and colour may vary.

The horn in our Gilded Paddle Hoops is primarily BLACK in colour.

The Gilded Paddle Hoops are surprising light to wear and are a real knockout - they look incredible with a simple, colour-blocked outfit. 

These earrings are made by artisans in Kenya using traditional techniques. We love how each piece carries the unique signature of its maker - no pair is the same as another.

Soko don’t plate the brass so their products are easy to clean - and you don’t need to worry about the colour wearing off. 

Size: 4.5 cm diameter

Material: 100% Upcycled Brass with Reclaimed Cow Horn piece

Made in: Kenya by Soko 

Care: Since brass is a natural alloy it will gradually patina with exposure to oxygen and moisture. If you prefer a bright sheen, simply polish your Soko pieces with a brass cleaner (like Brasso) and a soft cloth or paper towel. To care for your horn jewelry, avoid exposure to excessive moisture or sunlight. Wipe clean with a soft cloth.

The Story Behind It

Soko seeks to redefine the aesthetics of ethical fashion by creating modern accessories that appeal to the urban woman. Founders Gwendolyn Floyd, Catherine Mahugu and Ella Peinovich established Soko in Nairobi, Kenya, with the aim of shifting the perception of ethical fashion and promote conscious consumerism.

Soko collections are inspired by architecture and traditional tribal designs, creating a strong yet minimal aesthetic. Their artisans use locally sourced and eco-friendly materials whenever possible, such as recycled brass and reclaimed cow horn and bone.

Soko believes that for something to be beautiful, the system that created it must also be beautiful. Using new digital platforms and mobile technology, they are pioneering ethical fashion by aligning handmade talent from emerging markets with the international fashion consumer. Soko works with artisan entrepreneurs every day to build their businesses, improve production capacity and sustainably increase their income.
