Since the beginning of 2016, Kuyichi made a restart with four new owners. One of them is Dutch Televison host Floortje Dessing. She is familiar with the sustainable fashion business, because she owns two fair fashion stores since 2006. They’re called Nukuhiva and are located in Amsterdam and Utrecht, The Netherlands.
A lot was learned from the ‘first Kuyichi era’, especially about management and how to arrange everything business wise. What Kuyichi needed was real entrepreneurs with a real passion. Because in the first place, it’s not about the results. It’s about putting passionate people with an entrepreneurial mind in a leading position. Not only philanthropists. We’d like to carry on what we’ve learned about leadership and management skills, as a positive heritage from our first era.
