We are proud to be part of a growing collective of businesses that place people, purpose and planet at the heart of everything we do.
We pride ourselves on our business model, which is built upon our re-imagining of indigenous skills that have been passed down from generation to generation to create long-term positive impact and sustainable livelihoods within the communities that most rely upon them.
We are a positive impact brand that reflects a new generation of social entrepreneurs, driven by a mission to re-define the concept of luxury, while balancing both people and purpose. You can read more about our impact here.
