Our Story

Lokoa is an Australian lifestyle brand. An independent, boutique label based on the Gold Coast, owned and operated by founder Brie Shinn since 2009. Brie dreamed of a handbag that was as unique and bold as her bohemian soul, and inspired by her travels to the exotic locations of South East Asia, Brazil and Argentina. She designed a gorgeous leather bag that was meant to be a once-off, but instead has grown into a collection with an incredibly loyal following.

Lokoa’s range includes an array of unique handmade bags, wallets, apparel, and footwear created using different leathers, suedes, and boldly coloured fabrics. The Lokoa aesthetic is grounded in vibrant colours, bold geometric patterns, lush textures of different leathers and suedes, flowing lines, and playful detailing. Each piece is designed with the intention to be beautiful but also functional; not every woman has the luxury of an exotic escape, but Lokoa’s handmade pieces inspire a sense of mystery and adventure in our everyday lives.
