Hello and welcome to my shop, I am Louise the owner and creator of Sukikoko. Here is a little bit about me, Sukikoko and how we came to be!
Born, bred and educated in Manchester I finished university with a Law degree and soon sloped off to the bright lights of London for over a decade. I initially worked in retail but moved on to the very enjoyable and at times too sociable world of Media Sales, working for national magazines and newspapers.
In 2015 my lovely husband Richard and I, now living in St Albans found ourselves lucky enough to have a new little baby girl. We soon 'hot footed' back up to the north west in search of babysitters! Two years later another little bundle of pinkness arrived and we had settled into a happy new life in Altrincham.
I had always wanted to take a break away from my career and take care of our little people. During this time I thought hard about what I wanted to do next. I had always wanted to run my own shop and so I started working in a beautiful local shop. I loved it, I then realised I could do it! Why the hell not?
With the complications of the 2020 global pandemic the plan evolved and we adapted to the new world. I realised the happy, fun and bright local shop we had planned could work online. Just because we're all behind screens doesn't mean we can't make it personal. So here we are.
Sukikoko aims to bring a combination of independent brands together and be a one stop shop for all their amazing ideas!
Thanks for visiting, every time you place an order it makes us very happy indeed!
Oh... The name? Suki and Koko are our daughters' middle names. It's as simple as that!
