SOMOS by Coco Nuco

SOMOS by CocoNuco was born in 2012 when founder Coco Villa rekindled her great lifelong love and fascination with sewing and performance art. What started as a custom client collection, evolved into a line of a wearable art with an emphasis on botanical dyes and sustainable apparel. This is not just a clothing brand. It is an experiment where fashion meets contemporary art.

It is a way of researching, sharing, and connecting.
It is a creative practice, a performance, a documentation of movement, a dance installation.
It is the study of botanical colors, a natural dye lab, an alchemical practice.
It is an exploration of geometry, fiber craft, and ethically made apparel.
It is a closet full of eco-luxury garments for all to play dress up in.

Creations are wildly crafted in small batches and naturally dyed by hand with locally foraged plant matter. All goods are stitched together from natural fibers, folk fabric, hand printed textiles, or salvaged materials.

Coco creates one of a kind conceptual pieces for seasonal collections and private clients.
