Mary-Lou Curial better known as Lu-Lu from Creaciones Lu-Lu

Born on the 22nd of September 1974 on the beautiful Island of Curaçao I was introduced to Koilechi at a very young age.

My late mother used to make Koilechi, wrapped them in wax paper in sets of 4 and we sold them for fls 1,= in our neighborhood.

I watched the process of making Koilechi so often that I soon was able to make Koilechi all by myself from the age of 10.

Koilechi has a very special meaning to me It’s a way of keeping my mother present in my life, it’s her old recipe I use for my now called #Famous Curaçao Candy (Koilechi)


At a certain point I started feeling bored of the way Koilechi was being presented in general that I started combining different methods and using everything I could find to make my Koilechies more attractive and different from the conventional ways.

For example, my so liked alcohol bottles and fully hand painted designs.

Keeping in mind the fact that I wasn’t going to be able to make Koilechi for the large market available I started giving workshops in the year 2013. At the same time, I realized there was a need for a store where the people who followed my workshops could buy all the essential Koilechi making products

Koilechi Store is a long-cherished dream come true

Here you can buy everything you need to make and decorate the perfect Koilechi.
