Our co-founder & CEO Gelaine is Filipina, so we have a personal relationship with the Philippines. But we also believe that products from the Philippines are some of the best in the world - they’re beautiful, extremely well crafted, and impactful. The Philippines is a leading example of how businesses can create social change. And we want the rest of the world to know about it.
Great question! We did consider working with artisans directly to design and source our own line of products. But then we thought: wait a minute, there are already amazing Filipino businesses that provide dignified employment to artisans while creating beautiful products. Why don’t we work with them instead of competing against them?
So that’s what we’ve done. We’ve established respectful partnerships with the Philippines’ most inspirational and high potential brands to help grow and amplify their impact around the world. Those social business are also located locally in the Philippines and can have a much more direct impact to work with the artisans.
We choose to work with only a handful of partners in the Philippines, because we believe in fostering personal relationships with everyone we work with. When evaluating a potential brand, we consider a number of factors: like their social business model, the sustainability of their social impact, their commitment to their workers, how and where they source their materials from, and of course, the quality and aesthetics of their products.
We conduct intense research on all our partners to ensure they share our commitment to fair trade; this means providing dignified employment and sustainable livelihood to their artisans and employees. In addition to conducting interviews with the founders to understand their business model and social impact, we also travel to the Philippines regularly to visit our artisan communities and verify their working conditions in-person.
