Our Story

KOIKOI was founded by two brothers who recognized the sensation of comfort and the colorful appeal of Kikoy. We set out to make a difference and add value to people’s everyday life with this unique and vibrant African fabric. We have combined this loosely woven fabric with bright yet elegant colours suited for anytime, any place.

Start you day off with a smile, put on a pair of KOIKOI’s and enjoy the beauty of life!

KOIKOI's Sustainable Promise

At KOIKOI we promote the casual yet elegant lifestyle. Our ethos is built of the foundation of a comfortable everyday life with a splash of color and hint of culture. We take pride in producing a sustainable range, made from organic kikoy fabric woven in the heart of Kenya and produced locally in Cape Town.

Forming part of our sustainable lifestyle KOIKOI hosts monthly beach clean ups keeping the beautiful Cape beaches clean. We have partnered with investment firms such as Northern Cross Investments and radio stations such as KFM to gather bigger crowds and make a larger impact.

Next beach clean up : 7th December, Camps Bay beach.

KOIKOI Cares

Part of our KOIKOI Cares strategy we have partnered with The Amy Foundation. We have chosen the Amy Foundation for their cause and the story behind the organization. Their goal is the empowerment of entrepreneurs from previously disadvantaged communities. Being an entrepreneur and doing this differently are characteristics built into the foundation of KOIKOI. We supply them with our off cuts for the students to learn sewing by making them into small garments such as bandanas, stationary bags and numerous other products which we help them sell for a profit through there channels as well as our stores.

We have donated countless shorts to the organization as well as taken part in events such as the Gun Run to raise awareness.

We have found an opportunity to donate a portion of our profits to the Africa Foundation
