The Kooba story isn’t so much about Kooba as it is about women. Women, who every day search for ways to express their personal style. That’s exactly what the team behind Kooba was doing in 1998 when they found themselves shopping in a sea of sameness that was the luxury market. Armed only with passion, they set about creating a small collection of bags for themselves and their friends. Avid vintage shoppers, the team focused on the things that spoke to them: attention to detail, original styles and distinctive textures. Where the individual – not the accessory – made the statement.
