Koko Kawaii’s Story

Get to know us!

Koko Kawaii was founded by Brittany McCowan, an art & craft lover, stationery addict, YouTuber, and Japan enthusiast. Combining her passions for craft and filmmaking, Brittany started her YouTube channel in 2015. She created her own snail mail community with members all over the world, and launched her own stationery online store in 2019. 

But that wasn’t enough! Brittany dreamed of a place where people could gather, craft, and share their creativity. That’s when the idea for Koko Kawaii, the craft cafe, was born. It’s a place where you can unleash your creative spirit, attend workshops, and connect with other craft enthusiasts. So, Brittany took a leap of faith and embarked on opening a bricks-and-mortar stationery shop, bringing her passion for crafting to life in this cozy little space.
