"WE CHOOSE TO CARE HOW THINGS ARE MADE"
"In a world where true quality is increasingly rare, we are a reassuring promise that there are those who are still devoted to the craft of well-made things.
We are an organisation that finds meaning by making personalised gifts in Australia the best we possibly can. It is not just quality products, it is quality stories, quality experiences, quality relationships with customers and quality ways of working to fulfil our mission as a team.
No one said this will be easy, but it is infinitely more rewarding than anything else I've experienced."
- Shantala Chung Gon , CoCo Contemporary Connoisseur CEO
We do our best to run CoCo as sustainably as possible which includes, recycling our paper & plastics.
Did you know handmade products are great for the environment? Most handmade products do not require a large production facility. Most items are made in small craft studios or people's own homes.
Handmade is often very local, so it doesn't travel millions of miles to get to you. When you order from CoCo, you know that your handmade order is coming from within Australia and it's made here in Australia too.
When you buy from CoCo, you directly support Australian based artist. The money stays in Australia and goes directly to the person who made your wonderful gift.
But it's not just about money. Each purchase, gives the artist, the maker, the craft person, confidence in their product, chance to develop their skills further, opportunity to re-invest the money back to their business and carry on producing beautiful works of art.
