It is made of patterned fabric handwoven in north Luzon, Philippines. The soft fabric is traditionally used to make blankets. We call the collection "Memena," Filipino baby talk for "sleep now."
The straps cross at the back, and are made from our signature handsewn fabric components.

How we make our fabric components:
We hand-cut circles 2.5 inches from cloth. These circles are then picked up by the women we work with from a disadvantaged community in Las Pinas. They hand-sew and fill each of these circles to make the fabric components.
When the components find their way back into our workshop, we employ more hand-sewing techniques to transform them into the objects our customers enjoy.
It takes us a couple of hours to finish a bracelet, and then three complete days to sew a bolero. It is work that requires equal parts skill, dedication, and love.
