The CoutuKitsch collection is curated and hand crafted using a combination of old meets new through vintage supplies, precious metals, and beautiful gemstones. CoutuKitsch prides itself on creating a contrast that is, unexpected, beautiful, and ultimately unique. Dorian Kitsch (designer) and Kofi Oteng (sales guru) have been in the jewelry biz for over 5 years now.
What started as a hobby in late 2010, quickly blossomed into a second job for Dorian. After a couple years of working the trade show circuit with Kofi by her side, she was able to leave her desk job to focus on CoutuKitsch full time. After 1 year as a full time jewelry designer, the work became too much for one person to handle. It was at that time that Kofi left his desk job to help run the business and there was no turning back for this duo. Fast forward a couple years, countless farmers markets and trade shows later, the pair outgrew their 'home office' and embarked on their greatest journey yet - The Livery Shop.
'Coutu’ is a family name representing Dorian's Metis heritage and pronounced ‘kuh-too’. ‘Kitsch’ is her surname coming from her father’s stepfather.
