About Coast and Koi

Designers and producers of luxurious South African shoes, clothing and accessories​

Coast & Koi was established after designer Caryn Wilensky noticed a gap in the market for stylish, locally hand made and eye catching footwear.

Having studied the art of shoe making, Caryn decided to join the world of shoes designers and take her international buying experience into the market of shoe design, incorporating runway fashion trends with local style and chic designs including African animal prints and beadwork detail.

Her collections comprise of all seasoned classics, comfortable and luxurious pumps, as well as sandals, espadrilles, boots and brogues.

Shoes Handcrafted in Africa

Carefully crafted, handmade artisanal footwear using only quality fabric, leather or vegan materials. ​

Coast and Koi is not about mass production, but rather about classic elegance, unique design and individual style.
