POTENTIAL, REALIZED.

WE ARE DEDICATED TO A WORLD IN WHICH
THE FOUNDATIONS OF BLACK CREATIVITY ARE
FORTIFIED, ACTIVATED AND ECONOMICALLY
SUSTAINED.

THE SOLE FOLKS STORE + LAB IS LOCATED IN THE VIBRANT LEIMERT PARK COMMUNITY IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA. THIS AREA HAS BECOME THE CENTER OF BOTH HISTORICAL AND CONTEMPORARY AFRICAN-AMERICAN ART, MUSIC, AND CULTURE IN LOS ANGELES.

AT THE SAME TIME, THERE IS A VOID OF SHOPS WITH TIER 0 SNEAKER ACCOUNTS AND LUXURY STREETWEAR – BOTH OF WHICH ARE IN HIGH DEMAND FROM THE YOUNGER GENERATIONS IN THE COMMUNITY.

THIS IS WHERE SOLE FOLKS STEPS IN…

OUR CURATED COLLECTIONS WILL ENCOMPASS THE CONTEMPORARY AND THE FUTURE BRANDS OF BLACK CREATIVES. THE DESIGN OF THE RETAIL SPACE ITSELF COHESIVELY INCORPORATES BOTH NOSTALGIC AND MODERN AESTHETICS IN 3,000+ SF – A VISUAL QUEUE TO REMEMBER THE PAST WHILE BUILDING FOR THE FUTURE.

WITH A GLOBAL ECOMMERCE PLATFORM AND NETWORK OF MENTORS, SOLE FOLKS WILL INCUBATE CREATIVE ENTREPRENEURS LOCALLY, WHILE EMPOWERING THEM TO GROW ON THE WORLD STAGE.
