Nkuku was founded on the back of a life-changing adventure. We (Ali and Alex Cooke) set off on a year-long round the world trip. From the outset we were inspired and humbled by the talented craftspeople and their beautiful work, that we met on the journey.
It then encouraged us to do something different, so on our return, we moved out of London to rural Devon and started working with artisans throughout the world, supporting and celebrating their skills by bringing their products to a wider audience.
The materials we work with shape our collections and play a key part in our look and values. We choose to work with natural, recycled and reclaimed materials through sustainable methods of production.
Our products are beautiful handmade pieces which is what we believe sets us apart. The traditional skills used by our suppliers have been handed down from generation to generation. We value this age-old knowledge and hope to help keep it alive.
