Koku began in 2009 by two talented designers. Maria is a printed textile designer with a BA from Central Saint Martins & an MA from the Royal College of Art. Ilena is an accessories designer with a BA from the prestigious Cordwainers College (lCF). Both sisters lived, studied and worked in London before returning back to Greece.

They joined forces with the same vision; to create a practical, everyday products that one can carry in the city, on holidays or down the beach. All products are handmade in their hometown, Athens.
