The history of koi started in 2006 in a small Los Angeles apartment where Kathy Peterson, the founder of the company, initiated a simple idea that scrubs should be both comfortable and beautiful. She did not believe that comfort should be sacrificed for style and vice versa. Indeed she believed the scrubs should be both comfortable and beautiful if possible.
Back then, “scrubs” and “fashion” were not words you’d typically hear in the same sentence. More often than not, scrubs were blue or a hideous shade of green and made with fabric that felt like you were wearing a tablecloth. The scrubs were uncomfortable, did not fit well and hindered movements greatly complicating the performance of professional duties.
Kathy started producing scrubs with innovative designs, and over time, koi has grown into a modern company with more than 1,000 retail outlets in the USA, Canada and around the world. Since 2018, koi scrubs has also been available to customers in the Baltic States through the official distributor Prāna Ko, which has been successfully operating on the Latvian market for over 25 years.
koi is an exclusive, professional and modern scrubs from the USA where every detail counts.
On the other hand, koi scrubs being modern and functional at the same time is very important for us. It should be made comfortable enough to wear, even if you work very long shifts.
koi pays attention to every detail. When producing the scrubs we use modern premium materials. They are ventile, elastic, easy to clean, do not require ironing and help to absorb and wick moisture away.
When creating designs, we refer to nature for inspiration. Wide variety of colorful patterns and bright colors, as well as design elements make koi scrubs so special. We constantly analyze the latest trends to make each new collection even more comfortable, beautiful and innovative.
koi is proud to support international initiatives such as One Tree Planted, whose main mission is to help restore forests around the world. We also support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and other foundations.
Over the years, we have remained faithful to Kathy Peterson's vision - koi is comfort and beauty!
