I founded Cou-Cou Designs in late spring 2013 with the help of the brilliant Startup Loans scheme headed up by ex-Dragon James Caan. I wanted to apply all that I had learnt in my previous existence as a children's book, card and packaging designer to a new surface: tableware.
It occurred to me that whilst children's books are becoming increasingly gorgeous and design-led, much of the homeware offered to small people lags behind in the style stakes. I was also concerned by little ones spending so much time absorbed in digital entertainment, that they were not exercising their innate and amazing ability to create imagined worlds and characters.
With my range of Cou-Cou characters and stories, I wanted to create a simple starting point to allow children to re-engage with their imaginations, and immerse themselves in a happy world where the Cou-Cou animals go about their daily business at a slower pace of life.
Cou-Cou tableware is available as individual pieces, or as a beautifully packaged set, including a mini storybook to bring the characters to life.
I really hope that your kids love our products as much as I enjoy designing them, and that their imagination will be captivated by the quirky characters of Cou-Cou. See Less
