A big warm heartfelt thank you to everyone who came along to see us at Kouamo for the Cockpit Arts Christmas Open Studios. This year there was a competition for the best decorated studio. The buildings in Holborn and Deptford were both brimming over with festive charm, not to mention the delicious waft of mulled wine drifting down the corridors! Here is our news from this years event...
This Christmas we launched our collection of Kouamo Travel Journals which received a fantastic response at Open Studios. To mark the occasion we held a competition to win one of these beautiful hand-bound creations. We’re pleased to announce that Mandy from Essex and Adrian from Surrey were picked in the lucky draw and will receive their prize shortly.
As well as having the opportunity to greet many wonderful customers old and new at Open Studios, we were also thrilled to be approached by some exciting retailers from across the UK and from as far as the US. Among them was the stylish independent homeware shop In-Residence which now sells a lovely selection of Kouamo Notebooks. In-Residence is based at Camden Passage in Islington and the whole street will have a festive evening of treats, drinks and gorgeous gifts on 15th December from 7-9pm. More stockist news to be announced in the new year…

Whenever we get a moment - we love to take a peek in some of the other studios to see what our fellow designer-makers have been creating. Photographer Jamie Trounce took some lovely photos from the event including these studio favourites (Clockwise from top left): Abigail Brown, Emma Calvert, Katharine Morling, Eleanor Lakelin, Ruth Martin and Eleanor Pritchard. This is just a tiny taste of the inspiring work on show by the 170+ talents. We love the amazing craftsmanship and eclectic mix - there are always lots of surprises.
