Supporting Female Artisans in the Philippines

Founded by Charly Jacobs, Uri began as a journey of motherhood, an aspiration to use a career in fashion to magnify the incomparable skills of female artisans in the Philippines and reshape the opportunities within a community that raised her.

 

As a sole parent she know the value of time, and employing mothers and grandmothers means providing a safe place to play and study in their workshops whilst financially supporting these matriarchal pillars of the community.

 

Their work in the Philippines is already investing in the lives of countless female artisans and farmers, but selling their handcrafted bags means reinvesting into the area in a circular way where the bags they make are sold and a percentage of this is reinvested locally.

 

Uri's Homeware Star Collection

Uri Studio have added a new maker community to the mix who has created a beautiful range of star garlands and decorations, ready for Christmas or simply as some natural home decor.

Ma’am Susan’s stars are exceptional, she is a powerhouse of a woman who lives remotely, in charge of nearly fifty other mothers and grandmother makers. She is a single mother herself who is raising three children and has the most exquisite craftsmanship in the expertise of weaving palm leaf. Charly Jacobs founder of Uri met Susan on her first excursion to the Philippines and couldn’t be happier to now be working with Ma’am Susan again.

These stars are a subtle, simple, elegant and most importantly BIODEGRADABLE alternative to many of the Christmas decorations sold every year.

100% First Grade Abacá

Uri is committed to working symbiotically with nature to create beautiful natural fibre products that ensure a more breathable future. By growing their own native Filipino plants like Abacá, Pandan and Bamboo, they nurture local biodiversity in the Philippines and can trace their supply chain from farm to fibre to remain transparent at every step.

Abacá, also known as manila hemp is a natural leaf fibre that comes from a relative of the banana tree and is native to the Philippines.

Fair Wages For Female Artisans

Uri works to supply tools to women so they are upskilled and, through consistent payment of above fair trade wages, they can become secure and grow alongside the brand. They work with their representative in the Iloilo province to identify areas of investment, like education, community and welfare following the pandemic.

The price point of Uri’s products is accounting for the time and skill of their team, as well as ethical wages and organic reinvestment. The more bags bought means the more flexibility Uri has to allocate their profits where they are needed most.
