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.
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.
All is within you, in your attitude as you choose to see it…

What means KORUAI?
Koruai represents "travel", "growth" and "spirituality". It is a journey into self-discovery, leaving the comfort zone, with the fervent intention to improve as individuals and embody natural values. We are nomads on the road of personal growth. We place emphasis on valuing wisdom and truth.
It is the union of two words: KORU (Maori) + AI (Japanese)
“KORU” means spiral
“AI” represents indigo and means Love
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
Koruai collaborates closely with local NGO’s to provide education to disadvantaged children. With your purchase, we help these NGO’s with 5% of the profit.
