CQ & Koekaboera


An Australian bird that brings you good luck if you meet him or her in your dreams. A rebel. A different kind. A positive creature, always looking for new ways to entertain others. Fearless. A swimmer against the current. A laugh.

A nice story behind the name of our store. Not safe, not pastel, not ordinary. Normal is weird and weird is fun. For all children, big or small, blue or orange, boy or girl or maybe something in between.

A shop in the center of Vught has always been a dream. After I became a mother myself, I always knew what I wanted to sell in that store. Unfortunately, the first few years of my motherhood didn't turn out the way I wanted, or maybe the way I hoped. After several bumpy years, I learned that life doesn't always give you what fits the norm. Sometimes you have to do a lot of somersaults along the way. And yet I did not want to let go of this dream. After some years of patience and worrying, the moment has finally come and the doors of my very first real store have opened in September 2022. With three quirky daughters, a chaotic life, a positive mindset and a lot of ideas, I hope that this dream will be an amazing success.

I hope you feel welcome in our store, both online and offline. And I hope from the bottom of my heart that all children dare to be themselves with us.

The most beautiful thing you can become is yourself!

Who do you admire?

Fallon Carrington from Dynasty. A business women, a bit unkind, extremely clear and straightforward. Literally goes about appearing to achieve her goal. Oh yes, little side note, of course I know she doesn't really exist ;)!

What is your favorite piece of clothing?

Definitely my tracksuit!

Do you have a guilty pleasure?

Haha, I'm all guilty pleasure

What is your favorite CQ print?

The lemons from coming SS23 collection.


What is a print you would like to add in a future collection?

A new, bold pimped up leopard print


Do you have any dreams that you would like to do or experience?

Oh yes a lot. In the business field, I dream of a successful store that will run like a charm in 2 years and a second store in its infancy in 5 years. Maybe one day my own brand with which I can conquer the world.
On a private level, I dream that my family can remain complete for a long time, that my children become who they want to be and that they will not be swayed by what society expects of them. And not unimportantly I dream of a holiday of a few days without children but with my husband, hopefully I can finish this one soon ;)!
