What powers WoonHung?

 


Sustainability

The heart of WoonHung lies in sustaining the skill of the craftspeople
and their ability to provide for their families now, and in the future.
When you choose WoonHung, you choose to support a community of
skilled craftsmen. Many hands, and many lives are involved and
affected by the decisions we make. WoonHung’s approach to
sustainability looks not only to the choice and treatment of renewable
materials, but also, the sustainability of livelihoods.



Made by Hand

Each piece of every collection of WoonHung is lovingly handmade by
skilled craftsmen from Cebu, Philippines. Each bead, seemingly
machine-made with the perfect cut and colour, has gone through multiple
hands and tireless hours. From washing, sorting, hand-dyeing, beading and
polishing, WoonHung’s pieces are the result of traditional skills of cottage
industries that have been passed on for generations. 



No Waste

WoonHung looks to maximize the potential of a material, and to increase
its longevity and natural beauty through simple methods and tools employed
by the makers of Cebu. This commitment to “no waste” has created a
material-first approach for each of WoonHung’s designs. This requires
a determination to find the best ways to showcase the beauty of each
material, and working closely with the very people who live and breathe the
environment and natural materials they are so intimately involved with.
