What Does Silk + Sonder Mean?Updated 4 months ago

Hear from our Founder and CEO, Meha Agrawal, on the meaning of Silk + Sonder.

"I stumbled upon the word 'Sonder'- a made up word from the Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows. It has a profound meaning as "the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own - populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries, and inherited craziness - an epic story that continues invisibly around you." To me what was fascinating is that we all seem to feel this heaviness / complexity of life in isolation on our own path - yet it's such a similar feeling we all feel. 'Silk' is our way of adding softness and smoothness to that otherwise complex feelings of life."
