XOKO started out as a crazy thought. An idea that sounded like a challenge ready to be taken on.
Our goal was to create a unique brand that was emblematic of our founder’s Mexican culture but also her Austinite roots. In a world that dares us to be different and be bold, this all came to life by asking ourselves, ‘why not?’
The word XOKO [pronounced ‘zoh-ko’] comes from the Nahuatl word “xokotluetzi” which means ‘fruit falling from a tree’. Unlike most businesses, the ‘fruits’ from this project are beyond profits – from learning how to successfully & creatively run an online shop to empowering young female entrepreneurs to do the same. Coincidentally, the pronunciation of our name is representative of the heart of Austin – SoCo - full of life, originality, and aspiring dreams in itself.
The possibilities for this brand are limitless. Creative expression, new challenges and ambitious ideas will be fruits that this tree reaps.
