Hi! This is Coralee - the items in this shop explore the relationships between food, people, and the land. To care for these relationships, I work with local, sustainable suppliers and materials as much as possible.

My namesake Kore (also Cora) is the Roman name of the goddess Persephone, daughter of Demeter. Persephone's story begins as she is given to Hades without consent by her father, Zeus. After she eats a pomegranate seed in the underworld, Persephone cannot leave. Demeter is determined to have her daughter return to the land of the living and pleas with Zeus to return Persephone. Demeter wins Persephone's return to Earth for half of each year. Each Spring as Persephone returns, she ushers in life after winter. I believe her story represents interconnection between life and death, struggle and rest.

I named my shop for Kore to honor Persephone. I added Lea which is a field or arable land. I hope my shop helps to create new connections between people, places, and helps to restore balance in some small way.
