Such a great concept, such well curated products and with a real motivational ethos behind the brand to make you want to shop their products.

The environmentally friendly goods, make you think about your way of life, the products you do and don’t need, and allow you to dip your toes into a more sustainable way of living, and a simpler everyday life.

Explore the departments of soft furnishings, and storage for kitchen or bathroom plus some gorgeous vintage finds too and even be able to choose colours for the products you select.

They say;

Kuishi (ku-we-she) meaning ‘Live‘ in Swahili.

Kuishi is a home and lifestyle brand based in Cornwall. Our ethos is to embrace living a simpler life with products that bring joy to the home as well as showing consideration for the environment.

Why

Kuishi was born out of a personal need to change the way I live my life. This did not mean I had to stop having nice things, cutting back on the things that make me happy or making massive changes to my lifestyle. It was about making simple choices about the small things that make me feel good, by reducing the impact my spending habits have on the environment and people.

How

I do this by providing simple ideas and solutions that can help make a difference to our environment through change. Whether it’s reducing the amount of plastic items we purchase or buy items made from sustainable resources that reduce soil erosion and don’t harm the environment.

What

I just happen to provide beautiful products that will help you not only make a small difference to the environment but will improve the look and feel of your home and your lifestyle.
