It’s not just about making clothes

It’s not just about making clothes

We have a big heart for animals and an even bigger one for "our" feline friends. For us, a conscious way of living does not only apply in sustainable clothes making, but also in the art of giving. For the last nine years, 10% of our profits go to our cat shelter “Fasoulas”, named after our first cat friend, so we can make sure more animals are safe, protected and been taking care of. We love that our customers get the opportunity to support our cat work while they purchase from us.

Since 2013, couple of dozens of cats of all ages and shapes have found a home and lived a full life with us, rescue them from the streets, helping them recover from health problems or find a new loving home for them.

Our offices are filled with these fluffy creatures, who live alongside us as family members. Every morning our cat family welcome us at the office, ready to spend the day together, sleep on our desks, enjoy a mini break playing or cuddling, hang out with us during meetings and inspire us when we run out of ideas. 

As we all know, each cat has a unique personality, so scroll down to meet the fam!

Fasoulas was one of the 1st Shoko fans supporting us from the start, waiting outside the office everyday regardless of the weather conditions. Snow, rain, sunshine he was always by the door. He had been through thick and thin literally. Sensational and super inspirational. Always loving and caring. He was the oldest and the wisest. A true warrior and the terror for dogs. He really didn't like dogs. As the gang protector he would chase them to the point they won't ever come back to the neighbourhood. He weighted 10kg + when we found him. XXL. Definitely the most social cat when it comes to hanging out with humans. He ate a lot and purrs even more even when he went to the vet. He had been illustrated in most of Shoko’s collection covers throughout the years. Such a ladies man! He loved music and beef. You can't really pick a favourite cat because they are all awesome… but shhh, Fasoulas was our fave! Fasoulas found a home and lived a very happy life with his best friend (and our boss), Manos!

We continue with none other than Mike aka The Boss aka El Presidente. Mike was found all alone and abandoned on one of the main avenues in Athens, Kifissias Avenue on August 19th of 2015. Only 2 weeks old and in bad health condition with his eyes closed and having problems breathing we took him to the vet who said he was not going to make it. But nonetheless he proved that he was stronger than that so from the beginning of his stay during his 1st month at the Shoko Shop HQ he was the King. He wanted some female company so he started chatting with random cats until he found Leenah from the Greek island of Sifnos. After many facetime sessions, Leenah moved in with us and until today they still live together.

Funniest cat on earth. Leenah, or how we like to call her Tina, is a hard working cat. Her husband Michael keeps her great company and takes her for the nicest strolls in the garden. She is a printer assistant, she rides a vintage bike, she can climb the ladder and once she climbed such a tall tree, we almost called the Fire department. Plastic bags and boxes are her thing, as she thinks she can hide in there. Leenah, is the only cat that can smile and loves eating candies. If a light shading appears on the wall, you bet she will chase it all the while making a crazy- funny noise! She also has the shortest tail ever. She’s the best at massaging you and she will definitely brighten up your day. She was brought as a supporting friend to Mike in order for him not to feel lonely, all the way from the beautiful Island of Sifnos in Greece with the help of a dear friend. She will steal your heart with her sweetness.

 

Pixel is our smallest-sized cat with a baby heart and a matching body type. She goes crazy about cat food and she likes to stroll in the garden, even though her parents won’t allow her. She has been in a relationship with Phoebo for a week or two and we think she’s in love with Mike, Leenah’s husband. If she comes to you to pet her then all you’ll get is love and... a few scratches. Did we tell you she loves cheese pies and all kinds of breakfast? Well this is a one of a kind cat! She always asks for more and more love, so do pet her if you meet her.

Phoebo, is a quiet little fluffy cat that will steal your heart. Silky elegant fur and cute head-bangs are his characteristics. As a baby he has been through a severe pneumonia and saving him was the greatest thing we have achieved as cat parents. He loves hanging out with his best friend Steve and he’s a little messy as far as it concerns bathroom etiquette. If you pet him then all you’ll receive is love. Maybe the most good-hearted cat we’ve ever met.

Stevie the Iron cat was found by our designer Daniela outside her house alongside 3 other kittens. Because of his shyness the other kitties would not let him eat his share of the cat food so his unfortunate car accident came to his rescue as we had to take him to the animal hospital for a few weeks. To fix his leg from the car accident the doctor had to insert an iron piece otherwise he would not be able to walk properly. After that, he became a member of the Shoko gang as well. He was the heaviest cat that has ever stepped paw in Shoko's offices. Pure muscles. No jokes. All he wanted was to be loved and cuddled.

Some neighbours found her when she was still as small as a jellybean and because they knew of our ever-growing family, they brought her here. We welcomed her as if she was one of us. She is a feisty little one! Full of energy and always in the mood for games! She has a way of lightening up the place by chasing us around and always wants to eat whatever we are having at the moment.

 

 

Our lovely Mango was found in the streets by our neighbour, who firstly had the intention to keep her as his own. The plan was to take her back after her neuter surgery, but you know how it is, we love cats, cats love us, so… Mango became a part of our cat family. She is the sweetest and kindest of them all (please don’t tell Leena), always in the mood for cuddles, hugs and kisses. Calm and confident, loves to be in the spotlight whenever we have studio photoshoots. We believe she may has Italian roots, since she gets really hangry when we eat pasta or pizza around her. Unfortunately, this last year has been hard for our Mango since she is having some health problems. Of course, she has our full attention and medical support, and everyday we are doing our best to keep her healthy and loved.

Our little ginger Galileos was this year’s Christmas present. A very cold and snowy day in between Christmas holidays, we found him waiting outside our door, and once the door opened, he jumped right in and find his place on the couch, looking for warm and comfort. Galileos is now a young man, furry and soft, Mike’s best buddy when it comes to wrestle around the office and the best company when you are doing office work. Tries to steal affection by putting his red head so close to your keyboard and mouse pad until you can no longer ignore him and give him a proper cuddle. His meow is one of the weirdest we’ve ever heard and you only hear it when it’s food time.

As much as we want to share every cat story with you, we know is not possible, the list is endless. Since some of them found home in other countries, we still want to send our love to Puppy, Periklena, Kostis, Zoro, Aschimoulis, Fragiskos, Nikolakis, Markos, Luizos, Oliver, Spyrakos, Marika, Penny, Nikoleta, Rita, Kirki, Johnys, Bacon, Solomos, Kanelos, Scoupie,Bukla, Melina, Zoitsa, Danae, Steph, Summer, Hugo, Gasolinos, Luna, Kanelos Jr, Mangolina, Psitoulis, izzy, Izzy Jr, Aroulis, Floyd, Toula, Ricos, Rica, Rambo, Mitsi, Carrot, Parrot.
