Coco Bodu Hithi to host ethical resort wear brand Phemke’s pop-up shop
Coco Collection has partnered with the creator of Phemke Resort Wear to open a pop-up shop of the brand at Coco Bodu Hithi.
In November, Coco Bodu Hithi will welcome Femke Speelman, Founder and Director of Phemke Resort Wear, to the island resort to host the pop-up shop. The pop-up shop will offer Phemke’s range of ethically designed resort wear, from raffia sun hats made by women on the stunning island of Madagascar to espadrilles crafted by Spanish artisans.
“At Coco Bodu Hithi, we invite our guests to shop sustainably and discover the many tales behind each of these unique products. We embrace sustainably at the core of our brand and are delighted to bring such ethical experiences to the sandy shores of our islands,” Coco Collection said, in an announcement.
Phemke Resort Wear was created by Femke, a woman whose love for travel and style transcends boundaries. From the Middle East to Bhutan, the Netherlands, Belize and Iran, Femke has enjoyed the pleasure of embracing unique and interesting places, and gaining unforgettable experiences and memories.
“From the beginning, my vision was clear. I wanted to create a fashion line that was ethically made, from only the highest quality natural materials, and at the heart of it all, I wanted to empower women, local communities and honor artisanal craftsmanship throughout the world,” she says about the brand, through which she has created a sustainable mindset and a lifestyle.
Coco Bodu Hithi, the flagship property in Coco Collection’s portfolio, is a chic retreat where you reconnect with yourself, your loved ones and the wonder of the natural world. Translating island life into contemporary sophistication, the resort, which is accessible by a 40-minute speedboat ride from the main Velana International Airport, offers 100 villas that are surrounded by the calm view of the lagoon and the soothing sound of the waves.
With seven restaurants and bars, Coco Bodu Hithi celebrates and offers a variety of exquisite cuisines, taking inspiration from the Maldives and further afield.
An award winning wellness zone on stilts over the clear water, Coco Spa is a sanctuary for the soul.

An overwater gym within the zone inspires guests to keep up with their regime of active well ness when away on a holiday.
