A Different Kind of Love Story
* Written 2nd February 2022 *
Hello Cocorosers 💗
How are you?
It's been a long time, but many of your favourite styles, including the Alice, are now back in stock 🙌 Scroll on down to see an edited selection.
As February is considered to be the Month of Love, I thought I would share a rather different love story with you today. Many moons ago, both Gareth and I had 'proper' jobs in the corporate world but I certainly couldn't see myself in it for the long haul. And so, when I had that spark of inspiration which led me to invent the foldable shoe, I knew right away that this was the chance for me to realise my dream. We both decided to leave the security of well paid jobs - I calculated that I had 3 months to really make a go of things - and, so far, we've never had to return to 'proper' jobs!🙌 For the love of Cocorose, we grafted and bootstrapped on repeat to make things work. The journey hasn't always been enjoyable, but I can honestly say that we've loved it unconditionally. And so, here we are today, a wonderful team and extended family, many whom have been with us since Day Dot, and now also two little passengers who have joined us on this crazy ride 💗
One of the absolute best things about Cocorose has got to be meeting so many incredible Cocorosers and hearing from you. Below I've highlighted some of your Love Letters to Cocorose which, hand on heart, really makes this journey so, so worthwhile and gives us the wind beneath our wings 🕊
Stay safe and sending you lots of love,
Janan & Team Cocorose xx
YOUR FAVOURITES BACK IN STOCK
You've been so patient and a huge Thank You for all your Back In Stock sign ups 💕 These really help us to plan our productions and know what it is that you really, really want! We've got lots of styles and sizes now back in stock so... Happy Shopping!
...that the need for face masks will eventually go and that we can all return to normal. In the meantime, however, tuck a face mask or two into your handbag or coat pocket for when you might need it. We have a beautiful range of quality masks and pouches and don't forget, for every face mask sold, we continue to donate profits to The Honeypot Children's Charity 💗
"Without doubt my favourite “go-to” face masks! Excellent fit. Lovely, pretty and comfortable fabric. Washes well. Good sized filter pocket (important for the extra protection needed as I’m very COVID vulnerable). Love the little matching storage pockets. I have 5 now… and just got 2 for my 7 year old daughter who thinks the fabric choices for children are “the best”. …And all profits donated to the Honeypot charity - bravo! Well done and thanks as always Cocorose. I’m so glad to have found your customer focused, thoughtful, friendly and quality focused company. You always care about the little details and quality… and in return we Cocorosers care about you!"

SET THE AMBIENCE
Light up and instantly relax with our deeply indulgent and luxurious natural wax candles. Hand-poured in Muswell Hill, London, our candles are handmade using a blend of sustainable and natural coconut and rapeseed wax, so giving a pure, clean and long-lasting burn.
"Best candle ever! Cocorose is such a lovely company. Everything they do is wonderful and this candle is no exception. The smell is divine and I love the look of it too. Thank you. As always."

BACK TO THE OFFICE
Portable and luxurious, this stunning trio of hand wash, hand lotion and hand sanitiser spray in either Damask Rose or Bergamot, Cardamom & Pepper makes the perfect gift for those on-the-go, especially as we're being encouraged to return to the office. Stylishly packaged in our branded pink gift box.
"I won’t use anything else! Handy size, lovely fragrance and NO sticky residue."

OUR LEATHER FLATS
An extension of my very first pair of foldable shoes, these leather flats have come a long way since then! Flexible and still foldable, these hand-crafted, everyday-wear flats are insanely comfortable and have graced the feet of so many amazing Cocorosers!
"These coral loafers are absolutely gorgeous and so comfy. The colour just emits sunshine and I can't wait to wear them in summer. The quality is first-class and the attention to detail just what I like to see with a product. Brilliant shoes."

If you love trainers or feel like you're missing out on the trainer vibe, then you must try a pair of ours! In a range of fun prints without making you feel silly, these really are so fab.
"I absolutely fell in love with them as soon as I saw them online. They are pure heaven! Comfy straight away, no blisters, strong design, stylish, funky, so versatile, soft, the list is endless. I can literally wear them with pretty much my whole wardrobe ! And knowing that it has been designed with love, and it comes from an ethically run business as well I was sold ! Thank you for creating such beautiful trainers Cocorose!!!!"
