About me / About business or organisation:
Based nowhere and everywhere with a vision for minimalistic aesthetics and a simple way of life. Khogy makes garments from Tuna Leather (always from fish factory waste).
Career history / Company history:
Tired of companies paying lipservice to ethical standards Jenny (creative design person) teamed up with her cousin Caroline (an international business graduate) and during the past few years the Khogy team has been leading a simple nomadic lifestyle, embodying the concept of ‘the portable office’. Both brought up in family businesses (around Europe) their entrepreneurial sense is a natural instinct. With totally different academic and practical experiences the duo makes a perfect team to bring Khogy to the brand they vision it to be.

The Khogy Mission: To challenge preconceived ideas on consumption and inspire environmental action with accessories made from ‘local’ waste materials.

The name, Khogy and our ethos is inspires by Los Kogis an indigenous tribe of people who live on the isolated mountain in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta in Colombia. Their understanding of human destruction of the earth and the connection of all things is grounded in ancient knowlege. And they plead to us to stop our wicked ways before we completely destroy this beautiful planet. Watch their warning to the people of this earth (a BBC documentary).
