But from inception to profit, this collaboration is about as genuine as it gets. For starters, the whole collection is made from natural and reused brass. And with a focus on creating a stylish, sustainable pieces, most of Soko's materials are locally-sourced, reclaimed and sometimes the result of local procedures like Nairobi's "cash for trash" programs.
"As an ethical fashion brand, sustainability is core to our mission and something we take into consideration at all levels of the design and production process," says Gwendolyn Floyd, co-founder of Soko.

When it comes to the actual design? The V motif seen in this nine piece line blends the two businesses together: it plays off both the tip of a pencil and Soko's logo. Not to mention that this exclusive collection's trademark is undeniably sleek and can easily be dressed up or down.
Ranging from 30 dollars to 70 dollars, this line has everything your jewelry armoire could dream of: cuffs, earrings, necklaces, rings and even a pocket clip to spruce up to your work blazer. But regardless of which accessory (or accessories) you buy, Soko will donate 20 percent of the total revenune to Pencils of Promise, which is promoting educational improvement in Ghana. Chic, affordable and philanthropic? Hard to beat that.
