Fashion that comes from the heart, and is practical too. That is Kokadi. Our core team consists of seasoned babywearing parents. In some areas, we are also supported now by external collaborators. This raises the ever growing team of Kokadi to:
CEO and Creative Director
"kokadi " said her 17-month-old daughter all day, from morning to night. It was in one of those moments that Ceyda Temur, an ever enthusiastic babywearer, was struck with the idea to put her own twist on the babywearing sling. Thus " Kokadi " was born. Ceyda designed the styles and played with the colors, and in July of 2010 the company’s first sling was born. Each sling is unique, sturdy, and eyecatching: our designs (always in soft yet durable material) reflect current trends. It’s just as important that parents feel comfortable wearing our slings as it is that your little one feels safe and supported while being worn. We now know what Ceyda's daughter wanted to tell us all along. That she supports the dream we’re pursuing, and wanted to help us in her own little way: by giving us the company name - kokadi.
CFO and Head of Production
"Our children are the future"...a saying used by many, and a saying that Aytac Temur lives by. Called "Mr. Wonderland" by many fans after one of our most elegant wraps, his heart and soul is dedicated to family.
"As a certified automotive engineer, mobility for me is very important. By car or on foot; quality and comfort go hand and hand, especially when carrying my most valuable asset: my child. There should be no compromise - and we work every day to ensure that there isn’t.“
Executive Assistant to the CEO
Babywearing was introduced to Maxie when her firstborn daughter came along.
"Neither of my daughters accepted being in a stroller, so I needed to familiarize myself with other options. I quickly learned how beautiful, but practical everyday life with baby slings and baby carriers can be."
Maxie had already worked in the industry before joining the kokadi team. With many years and extensive experience working as a production manager, she now contributes to the entire kokadi team and supports management in all areas.
Anne is the creative mind of Kokadi, having already created the stylish and legendary designs "Rock’n’Roll" and "Oldschool".
Anne has created many other great designs, from rocking to frisky, and urban to romantic and brought to life on the loom with precious materials.
Head of Sales & Human Resources
Stephanie is a heart and soul retailer and has many years of experience in commerce and managing human resources. In 2014 she met Ceyda and helped support the Kokadi team at a fair in the last quarter of 2014. Thrilled by Kokadi's positive atmosphere, she braved the the switch to a job where her skills, experience, and ethical vision could be reconciled.
"The deep appreciation of people, animals and nature is an important part of my life. I'm impressed by the team, the products, and their manufacturing processes. With Kokadi & Pupidu I'm pleased that I have finally arrived." She has been leading the company since February 2015 in commerce and is the responsible contact person for merchants in kokadi and pupidu.
Costumer Care Agent, specialized in quality assurance
To Claudia Czech, babywearing is a beautiful activity and offers the closeness that a baby needs. She herself used baby slings with her three children, and in 2012 became certified in babywearing instruction so she could share her passion and experience with other parents. Since October 2013, she’s supported the Kokadi team as a clerk and babywearing instructor.
Parents are welcome to contact Claudia for assistance if they are new to babywearing or or just need some babywearing advice.
Costumer Care Agent, Specializing in Social Media
Rebecca is a qualified wholesale and foreign trade clerk and is experienced in customer relationship management and pre-sales. When Rebecca's second daughter was born in 2013, she researched child bonding and babywearing. That’s how she found kokadi.
Since 2014 Rebecca has supported kokaki in CRM, and in the customer service department as well since June 2015.
Customer Service Clerk, Babywearing Instructor, Promoter
Monique Reiter had her first child in 2003 and had no idea how much her daughter would affect her personal life and her career. She researched babywearing extensively and her with her ever increasing enthusiasm about the topic, she knew this was something she would be interested in on a professional level. Though various education and training programs, she gained the building blocks to construct a positive growing environment for her child, and help other parents lay the foundation for theirs.
To do this effectively, she collaborated with other specialized staff. kokadi was for Monique a constant companion, for both professional advice, and personal support. While promoting kokadi at a fair, she had the idea to stay with us long-term, and thus a collaboration was born.
There are many more great people behind Kokadi who deserve to be mentioned at this time.
For example: the 60 women and men in production, who weave and sew our stars and wonderlands with their magic fingers. Also the 5 hardworking logistic heroes who ensure that our goods are well packed, and safely delivered to you. They all work in the background - but are an essential part of our team.
