Ted and Angie of Poketo have been very busy lately. Not only is Poketo rapidly expanding as a brand but they’ve been in the process of switching spaces from a small Downtown Los Angeles loft to a spacious new hub for the brand. Oh, it also has space for their first brick and mortar store, too. That’s right: Poketo have finally opened up their first store!
The retail space soft-opened Saturday and is now officially open. We popped in over the weekend to check out the final space and were blown away with how many things they have. We were very aware of the products they carry on their website but seeing everything in person on shelves, tables, racks, and more you really realize how they have become this empire. No longer are they simply selling cool wallets but there are now t-shirts, cups, books, towels, soaps, plates, pots, shoes, socks, and so much more.
The goods are all very nicely curated in a very open, warm space that perfectly translates the online Poketo experience to the IRL Poketo experience. From the red painted entry way to the small upside down planters, their space is totally them and unlike any other art/design/lifestyle store because they have such a heavy hand in creating the goods. The store has personality and a homeyness to it that truly is unrivaled.
As mentioned, the store is now open and is located in the Arts District of Downtown Los Angeles. If you are in town, stop into the store and tell them we sent you. They would certainly be glad to see you. You can read more on the store and the space here.
