Koko started as an idea for a small shelf of products within their sister store, Forage (an interior plant shop and community for plant people). It quickly grew into the happy, sustainable and prosperous brand that it is today. The shop sells a curated collection of sustainable products for good shopping and better living. The store has a variety of products, including dish clothes, deodorant cream, hair clips, reusable silicone bags, candles, shampoo powder, toothpaste and so much more.
