Process:  Sustainable bamboo are used and by splitting each stalk of bamboo into quarters and then shaving them into strips.

Designer:

In a past life, Ken was a biologist specializing in marine biodiversity. Without any formal training in fashion and armed only with raw talent and a sheer determination to succeed, he ventured into accessories design. In 2014, Ken was named among Vogue Italia's Talents for Accessories and was featured in the magazine's 50th anniversary issue - a first for a Filipino. Since then, Ken has successfully launched his collections in London and Milano and has been featured in international design competitions and magazines.

Ken’s unique technique explores natural and organic forms found in nature, mimicking distinct textures by employing indigenous and recycled materials. He creates artworks from upcycled beads made from water plastic bottles, recycled sea glass and other sustainable materials sourced from the Philippines. Behind Ken’s eponymous label is a small team of women that he has trained to become skilled accessory artisans.
