Coco Loco is proud to be a socially responsible and environmentally conscious company. Coco Loco supports over 50 artisans around the globe and strive beyond fair trade. We work directly with all of our carvers and artists making sure that their quality of life is maintained, preserved and improved. Taking special care to source natural materials with an environmentalist mindset, we enjoy the satisfaction of finding and making beautiful jewelry out of recycled, salvaged and sustainably harvested materials.
These days, this style of tribal jewelry is also often worn by travelers. Inspired by these cultures, these travelers have carried it with them to many corners of the earth, bringing ancient tribal art and adornment into the realm of modern day western civilization. It is said, that when worn, this distinct jewelry often brings the traveler good luck. Whether a local or another traveler, has seen the jewelry, the two are bound to spark a conversation and exchange stories. Coco Loco would like to thank all of those who have exchanged these positive stories. Thank you to all of those who have sheltered the traveler along the way. Thank you to all those who trust and are trustworthy. Many thanks to all of those who believe in the dream of peace and unity.
The faithful never stand alone. Peace will gather. Our doorsteps are only footsteps away. We are all connected.
Coco Loco Studio Featured Artist: Steven Vigil
Come see our studio @ The Berkeley Yard
Featuring Steven Vigil a full time artist based in Oakland, CA. His artwork encompasses a variety of mediums, including: oils, acrylics, watercolors, pastels, and ink. The art that is created can be inspired from a curve, a color, a feeling, a shadow, nature, or even from the medium itself. Some pieces are thought-out while others are free. They can be technically tight and illustrative, loose and random, or both. Steven's recent watercolor pieces play with movement through the use of color and ink.They may give the viewer a sense of anticipation, often describing what is not in the painting as much as what is. They are about capturing an intimate moment and showing it off in a simple and satisfying way. What's most important to him is that his work continually evolves and never remains static. he is never really quite satisfied.Coco Loco @ The Berkeley Yard
