KYOTI was born in the kaleidoscopic streets of India, the palm-fringed beaches of Thailand, the incense-scented markets of the middle east and beyond. After travelling the world for four years and creating beautiful jewellery along the way, Jodee realised that her passion could transition from sales at flea markets and festivals to a one-woman business based in her hometown of Melbourne.
The name KYOTI came to Jodee in a dream, and to a wanderer whose childhood nickname was 'Jodee Coyote' it seemed all too perfect. The spelling is a play on Coyote, a spirit animal that's woven into the stories and legends of Native Americans and is associated with a deep magic in life and creation.
Today KYOTI has built a dedicated following of free-spirits across the globe. From barefoot gypsies to corporate honeys, the brand speaks to goddesses treading all paths of life.
