Sophie Experiences Yellowstone National Park Breakdown
Those who live in the developed world take so many things for granted without regard for how quickly it could all disappear. These were some of Sophie’s thoughts as she walked through Yellowstone National Park during the United States government shutdown. This wasn’t the trip Sophie envisioned when she took her handcrafted LUC8K leather handbags and belt to Yellowstone, but it was eye-opening nevertheless. To double the damage already caused by the shutdown, the former Department of Interior Secretary, Ryan Zinke, decided to keep the park open with only a skeleton crew to maintain it and handle tourists. The results were easy to predict as toilets and trashcans were overflowing with human waste. Snowmobiles tore through the park as they...
Sophie in Rome and Monaco
So where has Sophie been all this time? She’s been spending her days (and nights) with Governor the meerkat in South Africa, living an idyllic life. But now it’s time to head back on the road so Sophie gathered her exclusive Luc8k bags, her trustee cell phone, and she heads to the Eternal City, Rome, and then onward to Monaco to represent Luc8k at the Monaco Symposium on Luxury. Sophie’s combination of travel-savvy, distinctive style, digital prowess, and her commitment to living a sustainably responsible life has made her a popular guest at conferences worldwide. It doesn’t hurt that she’s a giraffe and thus an intriguing conversation starter from the moment she enters a room—but first Rome. If you walk a...

Ever since Sophie was in London and saw a BBC movie about meerkats narrated by Paul Newman, she’s been obsessed with these tiny animals. Their long thin furry bodies just over a foot tall are designed for speed above ground and burrowing underground. They inhabit some of the most difficult, barren and dangerous places on earth yet they appear to live happily in their large families. When they stand tall on their hind legs and peer out with their binocular-like eyes, it’s as if they scan entire swaths of the African deserts where they live. Meerkats are about as different from giraffes as any creature can be, yet Sophie is intoxicated with them. They live so close to her childhood...
Sophie Goes Home to Botswana
Sophie was born and raised on the Okavango Delta, a swampy fertile area formed by the Okavango River in the center of the landlocked country. Rich in plant life and animals it is a place that combines unparallel joys of a diverse landscape with abundant food and water. It also has the dangers of sharing a space with predators like hyenas and lions. Its main city is Maun, the fifth largest city in Botswana, the center of the highly lucrative tourism trade and the center of the agriculture trade. Tourists on their way to many safaris in the area mix with ranchers who bring their cattle to sell. Sophie loves the atmosphere but when she wants to get away and...
