ABOUT KOUSTRUP & CO
In 2011 Søren and Ulla Koustrup started the publishing house Koustrup & Co. to pass on knowledge about plants, animals, gastronomy and organic sustaining. With a background in biology and publishing and an interest in nature and the environment, it seemed an obvious path to take.
In 2014 the company expanded with two daughters and a son-in-law with experience in plants, design and sales. That led to an expansion of the products, which now includes design products such as card folders, posters, art prints, bags, serving trays, tea towels, glass ornaments, napkins, porcelain, coasters and more with lovely plant motifs. All product is made from sustainable materials – this is very important to us and of course, good for the environment.
BEAUTIFUL LEARNING IS THE ESSENCE
With a great passion for beautiful and decorative illustrations and artwork, we are continuously developing new Danish design quality products which are not just beautiful to look at but also provide knowledge about nature, gardens, food, culture, history and animals.
At Koustrup & Co., we love working with our topics, products and customers, as well as with authors, illustrators and graphic designers. The business is not just a job to us but is rooted in a deep interest and desire to communicate nature and gardening and create new, beautiful products with knowledge and respect for our world.
Every product has a story to tell, and we want to pass that story to our customers.
Sustainable materials are used for our products – such as organic, GOTS, swan and FSC paper. We reuse all the packaging materials we get in. In 2019 all our posters, art prints, tea towels and single cards were changed into bio-degradable cellophane bags produced from plant starch (it degrades at 58 degrees). Our packing fill is made of environmentally friendly-organic and compostable granulate, and the paper filling is recycled paper.
