Our story

Visiting a small business (or even exploring their website) to me feels like being invited inside someone's home (sans the taking off shoes part). These small businesses fill our streets, and homes with their offerings - they are the colorful threads that create the community's, and each of our interwoven stories.

For these reasons (and these feelings), creating a platform to showcase local talent in a way that easily connects consumers with such stories is our mission at Coimatan. Welcome! I hope you enjoy.

Thank you,

- Vasiliki
