Triggered by the frequent disparity between the pounds (GBP) charities collect, and the frightfully low percentage the projects they support ultimately receive, we decided there had to be a fairer way.
We founded CoCo & KiKi to be as transparent as possible from source to patron. Ethical, sustainable, and efficient: we harnessed our skills and roped in some of our friends. This has enabled us to cut the majority of the costs usually incurred when starting a brand, therefore allowing the money generated through the sales of our signature fox dungarees to ensure fair payment for all involved in their production.
We originally planned to send our profits to support long-term development projects across Asia. However, in the last few weeks, we have been touched by the awful stories that our friends India have been sharing, and although our manufacturing partners are still legally allowed to work, we have decided that it is safest for them to close until the situation improves.
While we ultimately want to help a wide range of causes a soon as we can, and so it seems most appropriate right now for us to partner with GOONJ to deal with the enduring COVID crisis, and help make the worldwide COVID response fairer and more equal.
Revenue from backorders today will go directly to supporting the COVID response in India.
Due to the current climate in India, we are aiming to fulfil our orders within a 6 month period. In order to pivot, continuing to help. We will keep you updated at every stage of the journey.
