Coast & Koi source bags which are recycled utility rice, grains, coffee or chicken sacks that have been used to transport produce across the globe and which end up in Cape Town South Africa. On any one bag there will be a buckle made in Italy from circa 1970, a purse or two from China, some printed fabric from Africa, straps of paillettes from India
We love bright colours and mixed media. Each bag is a unique piece and handmade and designed in Cape Town by Coast & Koi founder and designer Caryn Wilensky.
It's Coast & Koi's identity as a brand to create a world fusion of bags, belts, shoes and clothes with an Afrocentric heart that becomes wearable art.
