Why we ♥ LIKHÂ
LIKHÂ features a collection of ethically-made pieces ranging from home décor to jewelry and fashion accessories. Their products are crafted from natural, eco-friendly materials (often repurposed by-products of the food/agricultural sector) including straw and plant fiber, coco coir, sustainably-sourced shells, and recycled wood. Designed in California by our female founder in collaboration with their artisans, each item is painstakingly made by hand and features a blend of intricate traditional techniques and modern design. They stand on the pillars of design, tradition, and inclusion. As a social enterprise, they work with communities in the Philippines to bring beautifully handcrafted pieces into the global market. Their makers are spread across the country, each with craft specific to culture, methods, and materials native to their region. They aim to provide more than just livelihood - through their partnership with local artisans, they hope to help uplift their status, develop their confidence and sense of self-worth, and uphold their dignity as human persons.
