What is Good Luck, Humans?
We're a threadwork studio. Inspired by founder Apol Massebieau's lifetime infatuation with crafting and her urge to make things with her hands, Good Luck, Humans makes furniture, bags and clothing using hand-sewing techniques.
Our aim is to create objects that are both fun and functional. They are celebrations of the humans who make them. Our name is our brand, and our wish for mankind.

What are your products made of?
Right now, we are focusing on two techniques.
Many of our pieces uses hundreds of painstakingly hand-stitched Lucky Buttons. Many of our customers like calling them pompoms. They are hand-cut, hand-sewn, and hand-filled fabric components of our own invention.
The pompoms are sewn by previously unskilled women from Jeremiah Street, a low-income community in Las Pinas, southern Metro Manila. This is the hometown of Good Luck, Humans founder Apol Massebieau.
One of our goals at the studio is to help them learn marketable skills. All 9 women (and one man now) are now efficient hand-sewers. Three of them have advanced to constructing bags and clothing.
Just this year, we started doing hand-smocking. Smocking is a very old embroidery technique used to gather fabric with thread, so that the fabric stretches. To most people, smocking is meant for children's clothing. Well, we are taking on the challenge of using them on grownup clothing! We work with a team of women in Batangas, who learned the art of smocking from their grandmothers
