Kooba was launched in 1998 by mother and daughter duo, Bonnie and Abbe Held. They set out with a firm belief that individuality is defined by the person, not by what the person happens to be wearing. This philosophy has led to a creation of a range of accessories which promote each woman to express her own personal style.
Kooba has come a long way since its roots in the bustling streets of New York. Nowadays, Kooba's iconic freethinking style has become widely recognized, both domestically in the States and in international markets across Europe and Asia. Their promotion of feminine, self identity has made it popular among fashionistas and celebrities alike, with major stars such as Blake Lively, Katherine Heigl, Jessica Alba and Rihanna all being known as Kooba enthusiasts.
