About Us Test

At Kayu, we believe in the power of craftsmanship and the beauty of natural materials. We work hand in hand with talented artisans from all over the world to bring you meticulously handcrafted pieces in small batches.


We are committed to using sustainable materials, ensuring that our products have a minimal impact on the environment.

Our straw is real, not synthetic, and our leather is vegetable-tanned and free from chemicals. We take pride in knowing that our materials are not only beautiful but also eco-friendly.


Collaboration is key to what we do. We partner with small-scale independent manufacturers who share our commitment to quality and ethical practices. Our journey takes us to various corners of the globe, where we work with artisans who bring their expertise to every piece. From a print shop in San Francisco to a third-generation sandal maker in Athens and a family-owned workshop in the Philippines, each partner plays a vital role in the creation of our handcrafted products.


Kayu which means "wood" in Malay was inspired by Jamie Lim's childhood spent in South East Asia. Inspired by the incredible craftsmanship she witnessed in the region, she created KAYU in 2011 with a focus on sustainable materials, responsible manufacturing and philanthropy.
