Kui: Simplicity and Sustainability
Kui’ embodies simplicity, practicality, and a profound commitment to sustainability. It represents a return to the basics, finding purpose in the uncomplicated and essential.
We champion the principle of ‘Kui’ with every product we sell. We give everything careful, conscientious attention to everything, meaning our products aren’t just practical but a testament to our commitment to sustainability. Although simple in design, each product is diligently crafted and meticulously designed to fulfil its purpose while leaving the smallest possible footprint on our planet.
Shi: Sophistication and Elegance
If ‘Kui’ is the pure stream, ‘Shi’ is its reflective surface. ‘Shi’ stands as a symbol of sophistication, quality, and timeless elegance. It’s the whisper of luxury in well-made simplicity, the quiet confidence of quality.
We embrace ‘Shi’ through our pursuit of excellence and our dedication to the highest standards of execution. Every product is an ode to elegance, designed not just to serve its purpose but to enrich the experience of the user. 'Shi' is the subtle sophistication that turns everyday objects into works of art, capturing the imagination and elevating the ordinary to extraordinary.
Stephanie founded Kuishi in 2018 in a cosy two-bedroom flat located in the charming seaside town of Falmouth, England. Her goal was to create a comfortable, harmonious, and eco-friendly home while minimizing the use of single-use plastics. However, Stephanie found it challenging to find high-quality products that aligned with her vision, so she began sourcing them from reputable suppliers in the UK and Europe to share with others.
At first, Stephanie personally wrapped and shipped orders from her garage during the day and living room at night, later dropping them off at the local post office. However, as demand grew, Stephanie expanded the business, setting up two distribution centres: one in the UK and the other in France.
Despite the growth, Stephanie remained committed to Kuishi's founding principles of creating sustainable products and services that reduce waste and enhance beauty.
Thanks to the support of customers, suppliers, and partners, Kuishi has helped hundreds of businesses switch from single-use plastic to our refillable dispensers, which has led to the avoidance of over 1 million single-use plastic bottles. Stephanie continues to lead Kuishi from Falmouth, staying true to the company's ethos and mission.
