Snag Organic Home Decor From This New Local Store We Found on Instagram!
June 21, 2018
Palamuti is a Filipino word which directly translates to ornaments or decorations. Home trinkets add character to one’s living spaces and also reflect its dweller’s personality. For friends Maryjo and Lai, Palamuti is an outlet where they create original and organic home decor and accessories. This newest home store started operations early this 2018. Interior designers Maryjo Reyes and Lai Buenaventura established the brand to emphasize the woodworking and weaving craftsmanship of Filipino artisans.
“We thought that Palamuti would be the appropriate word to describe and represent our products since they are all made from materials that are locally available,” shares Maryjo.The design duo makes all the organic products of Palamuti from scratch. They source the raw materials needed in crafting the home accessories and accents. The brand carries pen holders, chopping boards, trays, and desktop book racks at very reasonable prices! Prices range from P380 to P2200. “We produce almost all of our products, but some were bought during our travels around the Philippines and curated them in our store,” Maryjo adds. To emphasize local materials and the skills of Filipino craftsmen, the items of Palamuti are mostly made of wood. “For us, what makes us different is that our whole concept for Palamuti is to produce organic modern pieces—by adapting the lifestyle of the modern filipino while still being deeply connected with their roots,” shares Maryjo. Palamuti is based in Metro Manila but the brand’s workshop is located in Tarlac City. As of the moment, Palamuti’s products are available online but the owners are planning to open and put their items in a physical store soon. The design duo also offers interior design services and can produce furniture! “For now we are focusing on home accessories and we can customize all our products depending on our customer’s needs,” Maryjo concludes.
