Our Story


…working just to survive, with no profit, hope or reward. Low self esteem and dignity are casualties of deprived areas with little hope. Caring for a brother or sister, when you are just a child yourself, whilst parents are trying to find a living elsewhere.

But help is at hand!

Yakoe are a manufacturer of quality furniture and are helping to make the change for hundreds of families in China, offering hope, through Dreams Living, giving an opportunity of a dream living to bring families together, through production of Rattan furniture.

Dreams Living is a privately funded enterprise founded by Helen & Simon, a couple who are living in the UK with roots very much in China’s Provinces.

Their Dream is to help those less fortunate than themselves to make a living and build a future.

All Yakoe Rattan furniture is hand made in China by the villagers that Helen & Simon hold so dear, and a promise made – to make things better.

Now turning over in excess of 10 million pounds per year, Helen and Simon are helping with the generation of the poorer areas of their home country by increasing levels of production to sell on a global scale.

With international recognition and ranked in the top 10 Rattan products by UK Lifestyle Magazine, Yakoe is becoming the market leader in high quality hand-made furniture.

A growing Brand

Yakoe is now a recognised brand of rattan garden and conservatory furniture, manufactured in China and imported into the UK and supplied from a 100,000 SQFT distribution Hub in the heart of the UK, with a sister brand – Roomee catering for home furnishings now employing in excess of 150 people in China and the UK, supporting jobs for Britain.
