The Uri handbag label by creative producer Charly Jacobs is rooted in the founder's cultural heritage. As Jacobs embarked on motherhood, she was promoted to imagine sustainable solutions to foster an eco-friendly lifestyle for her daughter.
Jacobs dove into discovering natural materials, handcrafted traditions, and tribal communities to harness the charm and artistic beauty of the Philippines. This resulted in Uri's handwoven basket handbags. The London-based company uses natural and undyed plant fibers to create each handwoven basket. Using a range of Abaca to pandan leaves, every Uri basket is assembled in the Philippines and finished in the UK. The brand patterned with a network of farmers and weavers to develop a sustainable practice while retaining tradition.
