ABOUT US


LIKHA means “to create” - a celebration of craftsmanship


Hello there,

We at LIKHÂ love thoughtfully handcrafted artisan products - we hope you do too!

Our site features a collection of sustainably-sourced, ethically-made pieces ranging from home décor to fashion accessories.  Our products are crafted from natural, eco-friendly materials (often repurposed by-products of the food/agricultural sector) including natural straw and plant fiber, coco coir, sustainably-sourced shells, and recycled wood.  Each item is painstakingly made by hand by our master artisans and features a blend of intricate traditional techniques and modern design.

We stand on the pillars of design, tradition, and inclusion.  As a social enterprise, we work with communities in the Philippines to bring beautifully handcrafted pieces into the US market.   Our makers are spread across the country, each with craft specific to culture, methods, and materials native to their region.  We aim to provide more than just livelihood - through our partnership with local artisans, we hope to help uplift their status, develop their confidence and sense of self-worth, and uphold their dignity as human persons.

Handmade with love - always,

LIKH 



 

OUR MANIFESTO

 

Beautiful things belong in beautiful homes.

 

Art, like artists, comes in all shapes and sizes.

 

One product made by hand is worth ten made by steel.

 

Handmade products, though rare, should not be exclusive.

 

Traditional materials breathe life to modern settings.

 

Makers should get a fair share.

 

Everyone who cares about where their stuff comes from has every right to do so.
