Cocoa and Jasmine is a Cultural Zine finding Art and Poetry in Travel. Inspired from the Cocoa and Jasmine fields of South India, this started as a cultural project with the intention of documenting travels and collaborating on creative projects within the artistic community. Within a year, it developed into a digital zine, creative studio, travel experience company and an art shop. The circle is a symbol of feminine energy, shakti of nature, impermanence and flow.
Founder, Sayali studied Fashion and Textiles at the University of Arts London, after which she lived in Delhi, Mumbai and Berlin. After working in areas of Fashion Communication, Art Direction and Curation she launched Cocoa and Jasmine in 2017.
