ESKO was established in 2016 with the aim to create homewares that were simple yet refined with an emphasis on high-quality materials, craftsmanship and durability. The products are characterised by an understated and elegant aesthetic, with carefully chosen organic colours designed to integrate harmoniously with the surrounding space.
The name ESKO is inspired by a character in the book The Cloud Sketcher who designed and built an apartment for his lost love—with every object, every knife, table and tea cup within, designed and crafted especially for her.
Great care is taken to partner with organisations who share a passion for quality, attention to detail and commitment to ethical standards. ESKO has been featured in The Sydney Morning Herald, Green Magazine, The Design Files and Est Living, among others.
