Artists in Residence
Soto is a design and engineering house creating beautiful tools and materials for all of your home improvement projects.
Partners Jessa Kano and Daniel Galvis began envisioning Soto while fixing up their apartment, after finding hardware companies to be frustratingly out of touch with their needs.
They saw a way to help others like them more easily and enjoyably improve their spaces: a simple care, repair and renovation experience created for people who love good design. So, they began building the brand of their dreams: a sustainable, ethical company that would not only help people complete their projects, but inspire more and more of them as well.
Made to live with you
The Living Space
We believe in the living space.
The kind that creaks and groans, chips and changes, that needs our attention and care.
We believe in the power of projects large and small to deepen our relationship with our homes, and the lives we lead inside them.
And we believe in taking care of what’s ours.
Doing more for our planet and its people now, so fewer repairs are needed later.
We believe in quality tools and materials that are simple to use and built to last,
That inspire you to roll up your sleeves and get to work.
Because a home is made of ideas brought to life.
Nothing good should stay on the shelf.
In all we do, we strive to:
Minimize our footprint by reducing waste and incorporating sustainable principles and materials.
Contribute to the social wellbeing of the communities we are part of.
Create healthier products to contribute to the wellness of the world.
Hire diverse personnel and promote work-life balance.
Promote reuse with durable, high-quality products.
Aim for affordability to keep design and repair within reach.
