Our Story

Our belief in making things by hand is the foundation of our approach and a reflection of our passion for artisan-made goods.

Our designs reflect a love for natural yet refined forms and made from a well-traveled, spirited view.

Started in 1996, Vietnamese-born designer Chan Luu founded the brand as a passion project after a long career in retail. From her early days making jewelry in her garage, the brand grew to encompass cashmere, fine jewelry and a men's line. Throughout its history, Chan has championed artisan craftsmanship and the support of fair labor practices, and her efforts have been recognized by the United Nations.

In 2021 her niece and longtime head of design Tessa Tran stepped into the role of CEO and Creative Director, bringing her own distinctive eye and youthful energy to the brand.
