Emma is the founder of sustainable British sock brand Socko. Socko’s mission is to extend the active life of clothing by re-teaching the lost art of darning. Emma’s dream of Socko began when searching for meaning in her work. She saw that her job satisfaction came when she was able to connect what she’d done with her working day with its positive impact upon others. Through combining her talent for craft with her love of people and planet, she identified her business idea. Socko launched its very first pair of sustainable socks at the end of 2018. Emma lives in north-east London with her partner and their sausage dog Alan.
