Jo & Kesi is an independent home décor shop on Leytonstone’s lovely Browning Road. Kesi is Swahili for a verb that means to ‘judge rationally’ which may be hard as you fall in love with a beautiful hand painted ceramic bowl, or a colourful but stylish cushion. The owners see themselves as being part of a ‘pot of people making their lives in London, supporting each other locally and where they can in other countries.’ They also sell their wares in Portobello Rd, so it’s a kind of ‘East Meets West London’ kinda thing. Regular shoppers love the brilliant selection, supporting great creators at reasonable prices. Especial mention goes to the friendly owner, the gorgeous prints, the handmade cushions, and that there is always something new to love with each visit.
