Every item in Cocol tells a story. Pottery, baskets, blown glass, hats; handcrafted pieces, each personally chosen by Pepa Entrena, the owner of this marvellous shop in the heart of Madrid. Pepa travels several times a year all around Spain, searching for new artisans, new objects, new stories. â€śFrequently, they are old people, with no internet nor anyone to pass their knowledge onto. Others are new craftsmen and craftswomen, who combine contemporary designs and traditional techniquesâ€ť, explains Pepa. In her own words, Cocol is â€śa childhood memory of the village houseâ€™s smell in summerâ€ť, and a sustainable way of producing, selling and buying, something that cities need to stay alive.
