Kayu&Co. stands at the nexus of sustainability, community, and craftsmanship. With “Kayu” meaning wood and “Co.” representing community, the heart of their mission is rooted in uplifting remote artisans. These artisans handcraft products not only as a means to support their families but to preserve their unique cultures and the beauty of nature.
Here’s a look into Kayu&Co.’s commitments:
- Sustainability: Their approach to a circular economy ensures that nothing is wasted. Products are crafted from upcycled wood and coconut fibre, diverting materials from landfills. Moreover, every item is 100% compostable, composed of natural, environmentally-friendly ingredients like coconut oil and beeswax.
- Ethical Practices: Kayu&Co.’s products are meticulously handcrafted in remote villages, ensuring authenticity and integrity. These artisanal creations stand as a testament to the time, energy, and skill invested in each piece.
- Transparent Supply Chain: A visible supply chain isn’t a challenge but a core principle for Kayu&Co. They spotlight the workshops where products are made and uphold direct relationships with artisan communities like Ketingan Village, Purwasari Village, and Lodtunduh Artisan Community. These communities focus on quality, sustainability, and creating products that echo local, social, and cultural wisdom.
At Kayu&Co., each product is more than an item; it’s a story of tradition, sustainability, and community. Experience the beauty of handcrafted items, each one echoing the values of fair trade and sustainable living.
