About The Designer: KAYU which means “wood” in Malay is an ode to the designer's cultural heritage as well as a reflection of the brand's commitment to using natural materials like straw, wood and shell.
The bags are carefully handcrafted by women in the Philippines, Indonesia and Malaysia, preserving their indigenous crafts as well as providing them the opportunity to earn a living wage while working from home and looking after their children.
Since the beginning, a portion of Kayu's profits has been donated towards charity. The brand currently works with new immigrant women in San Francisco through it's custom monogram program, providing them with practical training and an alternative source of income.
