About Julie Kouamo

…My Cameroonian Father takes me by the hand. My French mother takes the other. We will tell you our stories, they whisper. You can interlace them onto cloth.  

My name is Julie Kouamo, I am a textile designer-maker and the founder of Kouamo.

I am French Cameroonian and based in London. My passion is to interlace stories from my travels and make them into textile prints.

I grew up in the North of France, Lille where there was a strong textile tradition and history and I finished my education at Central Saint Martins in London. Having graduated, I worked as a print technician at Central Saint Martins and a freelance designer for Designers Guild, Robert le Heros and Atom Designs before launching my first collection in 2011.

A bit about Kouamo:

Kouamo invites stories of travel & colour into your home. Artisan collections of printed textiles, home accessories and wallpapers are inspired by distant lands and exquisite explorations of layered print techniques. Kouamo works ethically and collaboratively. Designs are handcrafted in the UK with beautiful materials and fine detailing.

We are Kouamo. We bring stories of travel and colour into your home. Our printed cushions, wallpapers, lampshades and home accessories become invitations to distant lands. Together we share a journey through warm memories or fragmented dreams of far off places.

At Kouamo our appetite for exploration extends to the way we work. We gather inspiration from across the globe through photography and illustration. To create our designs we experiment and combine many processes: traditional screen and modern digital printing and dip dyeing to name but a few. We open our doors to ideas, creative collaboration and new commissions.

The natural world and people near, far and around the globe are important to us. We work hard to ensure that everything we do is as ethical as it can be and to make our customers happy. Our artisan products are beautifully made and made to last – with the finest materials, hand finishing and detailing.

Kouamo started trading in 2011. Today we are a small but growing team based at Cockpit Arts in London, amongst a community of artists and makers. Kouamo also extends to our important circle of collaborators and service providers. Our designs are sold internationally online and through selected stores in London and Paris.
