We started Coco li in 2004 in Cape Town South Africa as two sisters with a love for all things unique and beautiful. Our little treasure trove has developed into a space where we can proudly showcase South African local creativity and talent and also brings to you special finds sourced from around the globe.
After opening our second store in 2009, we identified a gap in the fashion market and created a stylish, comfortable yet unique clothing range in prints that we love, in 2012 Freda and Dick was born.
Freda and Dick was inspired by our wonderful grandparents, Freda and Dick, who together built their own antique shop, Dickies, which was one of the first well-known antique stores and became an iconic landmark in Seapoint. Their inspiring love story and their dedication to their business inspired us to embark on our own journey.
Our Freda and Dick production line now employs 100% South African women, is currently exclusive to Coco li and has developed a loyal following.
Our team and our customers are like family to us and are the reason we are able to expand our little boutique onto the World Wide Web.
