Originality is trending at the moment. Nobody wants to listen to the same old songs, or watch the same old movies or try the same old hairstyles or wear the same old clothes. Sikkim brand Kokkivo Clothing is creating quite the buzz by breaking old norms and coming out with something fresh, unique and vibrant for the people of the Northeast and elsewhere.
Kokkivo is the brainchild of Deep Dhar and Sonam Tshering. Both of them researched the market for almost two years before launching the brand in late 2012. Later, Bishal Rai and Shiker Giri, friends of Deep and Sonam also joined the core team. The team feels that Kokkivo is not just about the clothes, they aim to define a lifestyle and culture that hopes to unite a generation through the spirit of positive change and establish Kokkivo Clothing as the ‘go-to’ name in urban fashion in India, and eventually be recognized as more than a fashion brand – A MOVEMENT.
The word Kokkivo actually means red in Greek. A familiar sight in Kokkivo products is a red panda, which is the brand motif. Sikkim’s state animal is a beautiful and majestic animal but sadly is on the verge of extinction. As responsible animal lovers, Kokkivo not only helps spread awareness but also contributes some percentage from specific products for the preservation and prosperity of the Red Panda.
Another thing that catches our attention is the vibrant t-shirt designs that are unique to Kokkivo. The team informs that almost each and every product is based on personal experiences of the team members. The team at Kokkivo is forward-thinking in more ways than one; it is one of the few brands in the country that supports talents in the form of musicians, skaters, BMXers and the like. Kokkivo promotes upcoming talents, sponsors with Kokkivo gear and even acts as an agent by trying to get these struggling artists shows and events wherever and whenever they can.
