Our Story Kouwi

Our Story – Creating a Bold Destination to Inspire and Ignite Your Senses!

Growing up, I had a passion for painting, designing, and styling my bedroom. It was one of my absolute joys, and my mentors and fellow creatives inspired me with their appreciation for the arts. I admired the likes of Picasso, Salvador Dali, Vali Myers, Frida Kahlo, and architects such as Gaudi and the ever-incredible Zaha Hadid.

This passion took me on an incredible journey to over 65 countries, where I lived abroad for 11 years, immersing myself in different cultures, art, fashion, beauty, and styles from all over the world. It was a wild ride, but it was worth it. In 2018, I returned to Australia, craving a sense of belonging, and I found myself opening a store filled with eclectic fashion, home decor, and health & beauty products in the heart of Melbourne’s west.

But as time went on, I realised that I could do more. In 2020, armed with some change in the bank and a dream to create a bold destination to inspire and ignite your senses, I founded Kouwi.com. My vision was to create a space filled with wonderfully unique items from local independent brands and beyond, where fellow creatives could connect, where affordable fashion could be found, where people could explore their creativity through home decor, where self-care and wellness through natural vegan-friendly health & beauty products could be discovered, and most importantly, where people could feel at home.

I’m thrilled that you’ve found us! Today, Kouwi (pronounced “COOWEEE”) is a growing marketplace with exciting local brands and international partners. Our mission is to create bold moments, and that gets us excited! Our journey is simple: live long, do things that make your heart sing, and feel fabulous from the inside out.
