Kokoro was born in Montreal in 2018 by serial entrepreneurs Cindy Cheung and Taky Fung. The name “Kokoro” comes from the Japanese word for “heart” – the feeling, not the organ. This moniker is especially meaningful to the two co-founders; Cindy’s daughter was born with a rare congenital heart disease and Taky has recently had a quadruple bypass surgery.
Realizing how fortunate they were coming out of these ordeals, the two decided to transform life-threatening situations into life-changing opportunities for infants in need. They launched Kokoro with the explicit mission of giving back to an issue close to their hearts, while creating timelessly stylish, premium quality baby accessories.
