KOKU accessories

Maria and Ilena Kokkou who are sisters and the designers of the brand «KOKU» have managed to sell their designs (in on line stores and boutiques) in places all over the world. We visited their boutique fashion lab and they suggested extra “playful” bags in all sizes and shapes for the summer.

“We joined forces in 2009 with the same vision… to create handmade products that look good, based on “clever” and functional designs. We love experimenting with materials and create products that we fall in love with! Above all we really love what we do!”

KOKU accessories perfectly mix minimal lines with bright and vivid colours. All bags are embellished with double plexiglass skulls, pineapples, palms,flip flops and other favorite fashion or summer-y elements.

“We are proud to announce that all our products are handmade and produced in our hometown, Athens. We are 100% hands on! We design the collection, control the production and pack all orders in-house. As real Greeks we are superstitious, so everything that leaves our premises gets an evil eye sticker, just to be on the safe side! This is who we are, and we love it!” 

Check out the oversized tote bags with the vibrant neon trims or the wash bags with the fabric palm trees on them or the skull beautycase that the famous blogger “Blonde Salad” chose for her trip in New York…The SS 2012 collection couldn’t have been more summerlicious! The summer 2012 patterns
