Our Story

Designer Chan Luu founded the brand in 1996 with the idea of creating jewelry and accessories that united her passion for artisan-made crafts with a reverence for organic forms found in nature.

Chan’s work is characterized by strong multicultural influences gathered from her travels, organic silhouettes inspired by nature, and a strong commitment to using artisan craftsmanship — all of which have earned her a dedicated, international following. Her early leadership in supporting fair labor practices has been recognized by the United Nations and the greater fashion community.

Today, the line encompasses cashmere, fine jewelry and a men’s line in addition to the core women’s collection and is sold at top retailers including Nordstrom, Saks, Net-a-Porter and Bloomingdales as well as brand flagship stores in LA and Tokyo.

Craftsmanship

We believe handmade goods have an expressive, soulful quality that can’t be replicated any other way. That’s why each one of our collections utilizes the work of dozens of skilled artisans using meticulously researched old-world techniques. Our intensive approach to sourcing components takes us around the world in search of one-of-a-kind and rare materials that go into our collections.

Culture

We’re travelers at heart and our work is informed by our passion for the people and places we encounter. Every season our collections draw on a rich tapestry of influences including folk art, traditional crafts and the beauty of mother nature.

Our designs are made to tell a story, so you can tell yours.

Impact

We believe in making a difference in the lives of the people who help make our collections. Our production has created a sustainable systems of support through work — not charity — offering a sense of dignity and creating opportunities for our artisans to build a better life.

As a female founded, female run company, giving back to our community is an essential part of our identity. To date, we’ve donated over $1 million to organizations that support women’s causes.
