Hi Everyone,Greetings!We are pleased to announce that the new collection of JACINTO&LIRIO has now been launched online!The collection is called unica – showcasing as always the Filipino innovation of water hyacinth (water lily) leather. But what's interesting with this collection is that it also incorporates other Filipino indigenous materials like handcarved wood, shell bases, glass charms and sustainable leather.The bags are one-of-a-kind and there are only limited pieces per design!Check out www.jacintoandlirio.com and the new collection catalog! For orders, contact Noreen at firstname.lastname@example.org (we can do shipping).And here's some interesting info:* Our photoshoot for the new collection was shot at the GK Enchanted Farm — the future Silicon Valley, village university and Disneyland of social enterprises in the Philippines.* We are honored by the involvement of our cover girl and fellow social enterprise/eco-fashion advocate Clarisse Simmoneau! She hailed from France and came to the Philippines for a social design internship with Gawad Kalinga. Read more here.* We are formalizing our agreement with Gawad Kalinga wherein part of the proceeds of each JACINTO&LIRIO bag sold with GK will go to its nationbuilding efforts of GK and the Enchanted Farm, apart from our water hyacinth livelihood development initiatives.* Our partner communities are progressing with their community organizing, and we are excited to strengthen our collaborations with them. Also looking forward to more partners using the water lily/water hyacinth.Again, go to www.jacintoandlirio.com and see our catalog, and give me a mail if you wish to order. 🙂Here's to Filipino ingenuity,Noreen
