The History

of Coco Nara

Since 2005, we have been working on our progress and expansion. Like every road to success, ours was not an easy one, but we got throught it all and we became, as once planned, the leading company in coconut shell charcoal worldwide.

Brand History

Logo Philosophy

Coco : is an indicative description to the material from which charcoal is made as the product was made from coconut shell. We needed to help people grasp the idea by adding this term to the name since people were always used to wood charcoal and using the term coco would help them know its not from wood.

Nara : this word doesn't exist in written Arabic but only in spoken language. It represents a glowing piece of charcoal. but when you say nara, people know that its directly related to the hookah.

So, the combination of both words became perfectly distinctive to the customers familiar with hookah.

The logo comprised of the word coco written in coconut shells forming the letters C and O as full and half shells.. The word nara just in Latin English font NARA. The picture of the logo is the word nara written in Arabic calligraphy and drawn in the shape of a flame burning and rising above a half shell of coconut making the picture represent the heat coming from the burning coconut shell.

The logo in its written words and designed form was done in Lebanon. It was created by Mr. Sharbel Dabaghy, designed in Lebanon in the year 2005 and later registered in 2006.
