Coonoor&Co is a contemporary online journal and lifestyle store that celebrates the art of slow, sensorial, and gentle living. Rooted in the lush mountains of the Nilgiris in southern India, our ethos is built on over a decade of lived experience and deep engagement with the landscapes and communities here.

We offer a carefully curated collection of narratives and artisanal creations that embody refined craftsmanship and thoughtful practices.


Our journal is situated at the intersection of nature, slow living, culture, and community.

Published biannually, each beautifully illustrated issue offers a rich tapestry of contemplations, conversations, and stories that delve deeply into the subtleties of daily life, offering meditations on gentle living, well-being, and nourishment. It also explores the traditions and wisdom of indigenous communities, sharing their stories and insights to foster a deeper understanding of sustainable living, coexistence with nature, and the challenges and resilience of these communities in today’s world.

As an independent journal, Coonoor&Co thrives on the support and contributions of its community. Subscribe to our Substack newsletter for exclusive, immersive stories and updates, and become part of a community dedicated to celebrating intentional and meaningful living.
