About koi
koi design LLC was founded by fashion designer Kathy Peterson in October 2006. koi's debut collection of women's designer scrubs hit the marketplace in 2007 and sold out quickly, drawing raves from both consumers and retailers. Koi's mission is simple—to create stylish, contemporary scrubs that their customers love to wear.

koi's innovative and contemporary designs struck a chord with fashion-starved medical professionals, earning a passionate, vocal and intensely loyal following. In just a few short years, despite a challenging economy, koi has grown from a small startup to a multi-million dollar business and leading industry player. Following the success of its women's line, koi launched its men's collection in 2009.

In 2010, to keep up with the growing demand, koi moved to a larger office and warehouse facility in Santa Monica, California. Currently, koi products are distributed at more than 1,000 retail locations in the US and globally in Canada, Europe, Asia and South America.
