About Us

Kohzé Store, formerly known as Artistik Crafts, is one of three ventures born out of the brilliant mind of Maybeline Despagne.

Born in Washington DC and raised in Cap-Haitien, Haiti, she moved back to the US when she turned 16. She graduated from FIU’s College of Business Administration in 2005. At 26, she opened up her first business, CAS Xpress, a shipping company to Haiti.

Over the next few years, her hobbies, drawing and photography, slowly developed into businesses. She turned her drawings into jewelry, t-shirt, totes and more. It was just for fun but as the demand grew, she opened up her second business, Artistik Crafts, and started selling her creations.

Last but not least, after years of encouragement from friends, she started taking photos professionally about a year ago and she’s loving it!

With Kohzé, you’ll find that every piece is inspired by culture, fashion, and art.

We hope you enjoy all the collections that we have in store for you.
