Formerly known as Leaf Gifts - Coco Gifts still has the same fantastic range of alternative and interesting gift ideas for family and friends, as well as items perfect for decorating your own home, all brought to you at fabulously reasonable prices.
Due to recent developments, Josh has decided to take himself in a different direction - So I, Ellie, am taking over! Many of you will know me already as I have spent the last 6 years working the various trade and retail shows, shopping centres and other events as well travelling to meet our wonderful suppliers out in Bali.
Coco Gifts, named after my beautiful best friend who sadly went to live at the doggo farm earlier this year, will be opertaing on a smaller scale than Leaf however my aim is to be able to keep supplying you all with same fantastic best selling lines that we have been, if you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to contact me!
Many of our items are hand made and come from various places around South-East Asia. Sourcing directly from the place of manufacture allows us to build on our existing relationships with the extremely talented craftspeople and ensure they are paid a fair price.
The materials that are used for our products include bamboo root, driftwood and teak. Indonesia is known for it’s extremely high quality of teak wood, and the parts of the tree that are used are the left overs from the furniture industry. Also by using the roots of the bamboo plants, we are helping to ensure that nothing is wasted when a tree is cut down, and another is planted in its place.
A close relationship has been formed with each supplier and an understanding of fair trade from all concerned has made a natural practice from the onset. At Coco Gifts I am going to continue to do business with the extremely talented suppliers that have now become friends, and believe that it is very important to communicate with them using the local languages as much as possible to show respect for their culture.
I try to use recycled packaging materials wherever possible helping to reduce our waste as well as our costs - which hopefully reflects in our pricing too. I am also working towards going paperless - so all order confirmations and invoices will be online only!
