About Us

SoShiro's approach is a distinctive one. Our objects are developed as future heirlooms that you would normally collect while travelling or on a cultural voyage. Each one is a story waiting to be told, treasured and kept forever. Underlying every collection and collaboration is the commitment to breathing new life into artisanal communities, sustaining historic craft and providing a responsive environment for creatives from all over the world, to thrive. So Shiro brings the world to you, in a meaningful and enriching way. To visit us, to exhibit your work or to enquire about a collaboration, we invite you to contact us.
