Studiomirei is deeply rooted in creating conscious and sustainable designs while working indiscriminately with industrial processes and small artisans. We evaluate the best processes and materials for each piece that goes into an item depending on its quality, novelty and environmental footprint. We work within an intersection of sustainable materials, craft, technology and empowering communities.
Currently, the studio mainly works with lighting products made of Banaca fiber, cultivated from the Philippines and woven by a community of weavers found in the province of Bicol. The proceeds of the products go into livelihood development programs for the weavers and their families.
