Why We Make KOEL

Bloesem Living | KOEL Update: Why we make KOEL?

For those who are wondering — why KOEL? Well, this whole time while the craft movement has been going on for more than a decade, we realised that there is no ‘one stop’ reference for the modern crafter which focuses on yarn crafting for the home. We see a large unaddressed global market; a gap — and that’s exactly where KOEL Magazine comes in.

As crafters ourselves, we understand that scouring the internet for the best yarns, supplies, tools and especially inspiration can be quite intensive! We’re often left disappointed when we have a difficult time finding exactly what we’re looking for. KOEL is going to tap into this, and give yarn crafters the curated content they have been searching for, and in the most innovative and tasteful way too.

Whether you’re an aspiring crafter looking for an introduction to yarns or a regular yarn enthusiast seeking the inspirations to beautify your home, KOEL is going to fit seamlessly with your lifestyles and becomes part of your daily routines.

We know that with KOEL, it’s definitely going to satisfy that craving lying in all the modern yarn crafters. And we can’t wait to get KOEL Magazine out there. So thank you for supporting the KOEL movement!
