Kayu produces an assemblage of classic handbags crafted using ancient techniques from remote villages in the Philippines, Thailand, and Indonesia. A mélange of classic shapes and contemporary design are employed to result in a beautiful balance between elegance and edge.
The brainchild of designer Jamie Lim, Kayu is the result of a true love affair with culture, ancient art forms and all things naturally beautiful. The collection includes classic miniaudieres and simple tote silhouettes with bold hues, graphic prints, naturally rich materials and luxe embellishments.
Completely based on natural materials and dyes, the boldly coloured summer collection consists of distinctive silhouettes created from an eclectic mix of Straw, Satin, Jute, and Tinalak. Locally sourced stones act as clasps for some of the clutches, and we especially adore the little shell shaped bags, which fit perfectly into your hand.
