FOUNDER & MD
Vanessa Streeton began CocoonU with the desire to offer consumers the opportunity to purchase something luxurious with sound sourcing principles, aiming to provide a refreshing change to the mass mainstream products seen on the high street.
Following a successful career in PR including working and travelling internationally, Vanessa wanted to create her own business around collections and principles she was passionate about. A love of cashmere and a strong interest in how purchases were manufactured, resulted in the launch of CocoonU four years ago.
Since founding the company Vanessa has maintained her ethos and in addition to beautiful, ethical cashmere has developed a core offering of bespoke, niche collections that are sustainable, beautiful and timeless. These include handmade organic skincare, chic jewellery and stunning Italian handbags. See ‘Our Story‘ to find out more.
Vanessa also works closely with clients in a diverse range of businesses including boutique hotels and private aviation, to produce bespoke collections manufactured to order. CocoonU now distributes in Europe and America as well as throughout the UK and customers know our products are not only exquisite and unique, but can be purchased with a clear conscience.
Backing up Vanessa to help bring you the ultimate in ethical, luxury, bespoke products is a dedicated, helpful and skilled team covering retailing at our Harrogate Boutique and behind the scenes support in finance, operations, technology and marketing.
But there’s one other fellow we need to mention:
