Cockpit Arts Christmas Open Studios

Come and visit us in studio E7 from 26 - 29 November 2015…

At Kouamo we love the festive Open Studios events at Cockpit Arts in Holborn. We and our fellow artisans, all 100 of them, throw open our studio doors and invite you to see our latest creations. It is eye-opening to see behind-the-scenes and explore this big building, an old warehouse hidden in the heart of London and housing  a warren of burgeoning creativity.

There is also something really special about meeting up here face-to-face. You get to buy work directly from the creator and to learn more about the design ideas and making process. For us, it is heartwarming to see our lovingly-made pieces off to happy new homes or to learn about the special people who will receive them as a gift.

We hope you can join us in Studio E7. Here are some of the forthcoming Open Studios highlights for us at Kouamo:

NEW: Thursday Late
The Open Studios promise to be bigger and better than ever before with a new late opening on Thursday 26 November from 6-9pm. We’ll also be open from Friday 27 November until Sunday 29 November from 11am-6pm.


Warming Your Winter Home

As winter draws nearer, we may crank up the heating - but fleeting memories and dreams of exotic places can also warm our hearts. At Open Studios we will be showing our travel inspired collections Vinales and Bangou - with layers of colour, narrative and luxury which can ignite real warmth into your surroundings.

As well as showing our newest collections we have some amazing end-of-line and sample pieces at Open Studios, offered at very special prices. These include New York Bridges, our Stripe Collection and Nkunti designs. They are sure to be popular so snap them up while stocks last!

Our new Printed Notebooks are made entirely from 100% recycled paper and printed in the UK with our signature designs. This Christmas we are also introducing luxurious bound Fabric Journals complete with 112 sheets of lined ivory Italian paper and elastic.
