spiritual lifestyle

3 years ago my life changed - though it seems like yesterday. I closed my business, said goodbye to family and friends, packed a couple bags and started to travel. Destiny brought me to Bali, Indonesia, where I fell in love with the island and its people.

In this time I have met many people, I have learnt and I have grown. After a Balinese ceremony, I started thinking about all the people who had taught me something and all these artisans that work with passion.

From this, the idea of Koruai was born. We launched in 2015 with the goal of embodying a new lifestyle, not just a simple brand. You can feel in each Koruai piece the care put into making them. These are products which connect you with your emotions and allow you to explore within.

Koruai is for people who are:

- Passionate about travel and new cultures.
- Exploring spirituality.
- Care about ecological fabrics.
- Love classy and elegant products.

All is about expanding our consciousness.

Our Mission

It is to support local artisans and work with natural materials. We hope that each Koruai product will bring you happiness.

All our products are handmade.

Every item should evoke the seeing in our minds of creativity, purity, effort and the passion that went into each creation.

Remove your fears, leave your comfort zone, start to feel…
All is within you, in your attitude as you choose to see it…

It is the union of two words: KORU (Maori) + AI (Japanese)

“KORU” means spiral
It is the oldest known sacred symbol. It symbolizes new life and our evolutionary journey in life.
It represents the path leading from outer consciousness (materialism, ego) to the inner soul (the unseen essence). Movements between the inner world (intangible, intuitive) and outside (matter, manifests) are assigned by the spiral rings, marking the evolution.
“The human mind always makes progress, but progress is a spiral.” – Madame de Stael
