Founded 3 years ago by young couple Case Bakker and Jessie Lyon, Pokoloko specializes in fair trade home and apparel goods sourced directly from the artisans making them. Together with their small-but-mighty warehouse team, they are well-known for fantastic customer experiences, quick shipping, and strong sell-through.
Their mission is to provide quality, best-selling, and ethical products to their customers, while providing economic opportunities to producers in need via sustainable employment. Pokoloko supports more than 50 artisans in 4 countries, across 3 continents.
“We’re so grateful not only for this recognition, but for the opportunities the Canadian Gift Association creates for us and our artisan partners. It is moments like these that make it all worth it, and keep us striving to be our very best for our customers.” – Jessie Lyon, Business Development Director
