Friday Favorites :: Kayu


If you love a good statement clutch then you are sure to love all the designs by Kayu, a California based label founded by Jamie Lim. Growing up in South East Asia, Jamie was surrounded by artisanal crafts and founded Kayu to help preserve and cultivate these crafts and techniques used to create them. Kayu works with artisans from Thailand, the Philippines, Malaysia, and Indonesia. The clutches are made with natural materials such as shells, wood, and straw. Each bag is created by hand and sometimes take days to complete. You could call each piece a work of art and the details put into each bag is stunning. I bought this one for my mom a few years back and borrow it all of the time. I think it's time to finally make one of them mine! Loving this and this one.
