Named after founder Saffron Pugh-Blaby’s own daughters, Coco and Ginger’s pieces hero colour, Balinese folk art and artistic traditions. Think: ethically produced embroidered playsuits, screen-printed and hand-stitched dresses, tropical-hued jumpsuits and more. We can’t get enough! Working with a small collective of Balinese women, the brand produces unique pieces with beautiful craftsmanship – and the inevitable variations are to be celebrated. “It’s those imperfections that make life and art interesting,” Saffron says. “I hope people see each piece of my collection as a small work of art.”
