“En Route” is a term borrowed from the French language which translates to 'on the way or along the way'. Like our journey, everything is an onward process: from the stories of the artisans we work with, to the pursuit of making the business more impactful and inclusive.
En Route Handcrafted Accessories empowers women in Filipino communities to become artisan-entrepreneurs through sustainable fashion. Every piece is responsibly crafted from eco-ethical materials such as upcycled and secondhand fabrics and indigenous weaves, sourced from small businesses and artisan communities from the Philippine provinces. Based in Davao region, En Route Handcrafted proudly works with women artisans in Mindanao and across the islands.
Formerly known as Olivia & Diego Upcycled Jewelry
Through our “why,” we uplifted the Davao spirit of innovating, upcycling, and conversing about ethical fashion. I’ve learned so much – from the artisans to the storytellers. One of my biggest takeaways is we’re all works-in-progress.
