Serena Christie - Jan 21 2021

Did you see us in The Weekend Australian? 

KOBI was featured in the Travel + Indulgence section January 16-17 2021 

On the morning of the 16th January 2021 I raced to the news agency to see if it was true- had KOBI really been featured in the Travel + Indulgence section of The Weekend Australian?!

Yes, it was true!! I may or may not be responsible for a shortage of Australians in my area that Saturday having purchased multiple copies for my parents and grandparents! 

KOBI was born out of a love for travel and nature 

Having backpacked my way through roughly 30 countries across 6 continents Susan Kurosawa was spot on when describing me as an “inveterate traveller” in the column below:

In 2016, 22 year old Serena had no idea that the simple action of purchasing a natural cork handbag from a street vendor in Portugal would lead me to where I am today! The founder of “environmentally savvy Australian boutique brand KOBI”.
