We are explorers driven by a desire to experience the World in all its multicolored crazy glory. Inspired by our love for history and our insatiable attraction for imagery and objects of bygone times, we scour the globe from Penang to Hollywood, via Madrid and Mexico City in search of iconic images and objects of the past, curating the meaningful and aesthetic to create the World of Coolkitsch
A partnership built on friendship and family, Coolkitsch is our shared dream.
