Poketo’s first artist wallet series launched in San Francisco along with the first art show where the wallets sold out. We had late nights at Angie’s art school to print the first series of wallets. That first series and art show was such a success, it inspired us to start Poketo. The name Poketo comes from Angie’s Korean grandmother's mispronunciation of “pocket”. Poh-Keh-Toe. 
Founded in 2003 by husband-and-wife team Ted Vadakan and Angie Myung, Poketo has grown from a small startup into a creative hub and online destination. A lifestyle brand born out of the desire to infuse art and design into every day,  Poketo creates collections of design-conscious goods to cultivate a creative lifestyle

Poketo has worked with brands and companies like Nike, MTV, Disney, Target, Nordstrom and MailChimp, museums like MOCA, the Guggenheim, the de Young, and SFMOMA, and has collaborated with over 200 international artists, creating exclusive products that reflect its philosophy of “Art for Your Every day.”

In 2019, they've published their debut book, CREATIVE SPACES, a celebration of creatives, their work, and their spaces. With stunning photography, intimate profiles, and unexpected takeaways, the book showcases an eclectic mix of creatives in the spaces that inspire them.
