Sharing our
Mediterranean Heritage

Coccinella is the Latin word for “ladybug.” By consumption of
plant-eating insects, it protects crops around the world,
contributing to a healthy environment. This small creature’s
energy, vitality, and bold coloring inspire our products.
Its symbolism of good fortune and prosperity is the reason we’ve
chosen the name Coccinella Mediterranean Heritage.

Our Story

Coccinella Mediterranean Heritage is a family-owned
business created to share the Mediterranean lifestyle
with our community.

Several years ago, our family hosted a student from Italy
as part of an educational exchange program. This
experience showed us the benefit of being immersed in
another culture. So much so that we chose to send our
sons to attend high school and college in the United
States. They enjoyed building new friendships, learning
new a language, and experiencing other cultural
traditions. During our frequent visits, we experienced the
warm hospitality of their teachers, friends, and families.

Thus a desire to share our favorite traditions and
beautiful products from the Mediterranean with our new
home in the United States was sparked. After years of
managing successful companies in Turkey, our home
country, we began this exciting new endeavor that
combines our business experience and passion for our
proud Mediterranean heritage!

Coccinella Mediterranean Heritage offers only the
highest quality products representing the best of
Mediterranean culture. We hope they inspire you to enjoy
and embrace this vibrant lifestyle, and that it brings you
good fortune and prosperity.
