We hope you enjoy our selection and find your own pick ‘n’ mix that will add more values to your daily life.
Chacha Moa all began with a dream. Seoyoung Kang, whose life has been centred around gastronomy (and with a ‘wee’ dose of crafted tipple), moved to Scotland, dreaming of living in the whisky wonderland. The whisky galore has gratified her thirst for the water of life, but she soon realised that even whisky couldn’t compensate for yearning for home! She opened Dining de Dimibang, hoping to be reconnected to craftsmanship, art, artisan food and drinks of South Korea. Her friend Minhee Kim, who values the same precious things in life, joined the project in the pursuit of sharing her version of slow living with more people. The two friends pulled together and came back with Chacha Moa.
Our mission lies in its simplicity. Life is short, yet we are surrounded by countless longevity - passion for arts and culture, love for good food and drinks that nourish our daily life, and spirits of people creating traditions and innovations with the aim of realising the passion and love. If we can only live every moment of our life, being connected to, appreciating, and enjoying them, perhaps that’s one of the ways to live it up. We want to make your every day more vivid, enjoyable and appreciated by introducing the values we believe in.
Minhee Kim was born and bred in Seoul, South Korea. She used to be caught up in a whirling vortex of a busy and fast-changing society. Having followed a slow-living 'Hygge' lifestyle since her time in Finland and Denmark, she now wants to spread the value of counting every moment in life!
Having travelled widely and hedonistically, Seoyoung is a connoisseur of exotic foods and drinks. As much as she loves to explore the world through food, she would also like to celebrate and introduce her motherland's food culture.
Sustainable, Ethical, Handmade
We work with independent artisans who persist in the handmade process and sustainable methods of production. Each product is an individually crafted piece that takes more time and dedication than that of a mass-market item. Our carefully curated objects have been selected based on their timeless designs, quality, craftsmanship, uniqueness and the stories they tell.
Skill, story, quality, authenticity, originality, essence, time, dedication, patience and passion - the art of slow living.
