our story

graphic-our-story

At KuSan we surf. We board. We ski. We love to travel chasing the seasons, but equally love the vibrancy of city life. In 2000 when travelling through Nepal, we fell in love with the country- its people, culture and stunning landscapes – but also the striking style of knitted clothing. Suddenly working with wool seemed the natural thing to do. It’s individual. It’s comfortable. It’s warm. So we thought we’d try something different with it and brought back a selection to the UK hoping to share with like-minded urban souls… We obviously got something right, because demand was so high for our designs, that we packed in our old jobs to pursue all things warm and woolly. And over the years our reputation has in turn quietly grown… from London’s skate parks to chic boutiques across Europe.

Our warehouse and offices are now based in North London, supporting and channelling the items still produced locally and ethically in Nepal. Seventeen years on, our range has expanded from just hats and scarves to now include woolly handbags, purses and gloves in a number of styles and bold colours. All our products are fleece lined and still made from 100% wool.

And we never sit still. Our team is always watching and observing, listening and noting, to make sure the new collections that KuSan introduces each year keep the brand innovative and ‘must-have’ amongst our loyal band of wearers!
