Some pack a backpack and set off on a journey of a lifetime, others stay at home and read stories from the end of the world breathlessly. They all have three things in common - the imagination, curiosity and passion. Three topics that created the KOKOworld brand.
Agata was one of those restless spirits. She quit her job in a corporation, packed the necessary things and set off on a journey. At that time she did not know yet that this journey would shape her future.
The destination was obvious: Africa. It was there at the Festival of Music in Mali where she had met people who made her realize that she should follow her own path. Suddenly, everything became clear. Why not combine all those passions for music, dancing, long trips and handicrafts in one? You can do it... if you really want it, right?
Upon returning from Mali, everything seemed to be whispering: you have to take fate into your own hands and do something good. Simple? Not really.
Stubbornly, with imagination and incredible sensitivity, after months of working and travelling with a small daughter in pursuit of authentic handicrafts, the dream-project of uniting artisans from Africa, South America, North Asia and Poland became real.
This is how the KOKOworld brand was born with its goal to connect the farthest ends of the world, tailors from Senegal and Poland, craftsmen from Morocco with those from Krakow. KOKOworld aims also at brining the history and traditions of Developing Countries closer to us.
why I pack a backpack, set off and search for original fabrics,

says Agata and she keeps on discovering new ways and places to
develop projects that once seemed impossible.
