As part of our goal to become a zero-waste manufacturer, the idea to develop Dapo’s signature phone holder was for the purpose of reducing excess wood produced at our factory.
The KOCHI phone holder initially began as a paperweight, a block of excess wood born from cutting the outlines of our PEGA board handles. This block was then rounded at the edges to a point that it lightly resembled the ‘Kuih Kochi’ - a sweet Malay glutenous rice dumpling, and later evolved into a more functional item that now comes in 3 modern designs.
Made from PEFC-certified Balau wood residue, this unique product has quickly become our best-selling item and is the perfect example of how waste can be uniquely transformed into new, functional pieces.

*Due to the natural characteristics of wood, the wood tone & grains may vary slightly from the image displayed.
While we seek for perfection, working with imperfect materials help us to reduce the potential waste we may otherwise create at our factory, and the landfills.
Dapo’s Grade B collection focuses on the natural characteristics of our wood, with its own set of unique patches, knots, and mineral streaks.
While it might not be aesthetically ‘perfect’ as Grade A, the unique blemishes do not impact the quality or functionality of our products, so you can rest assured that your product will last for the long term.
