PHILOSOPHY

Polished Cocnut is a socially responsible lifestyle brand rooted and inspired by indigenous and folkloric lifestyle. Working with select groups of artisans, I collaborate with over 200 women to preserve their cultural heritage and design meticulously handmade fashion and home design accessories. This elevates their craft to its highest design expression. It is my core belief that there is no challenge more powerful than the development of women. Together, we respond to the growing consumer demand for socially conscious home and fashion products and meet a critical need for environmental sustainability by conservation of exceptional ancestral craftsmanship.

Polished Coconut wants to empower people to change the way the global economy works. We are part of a world in which small businesses have more impact in shaping the economy. Local living economies are thriving everywhere and consumer’s value craftsmanship and provenance as much as price and convenience. We are bringing heart to commerce and making the world fairer, more sustainable, and more beautiful. Each transaction positively impacts society. Together we contribute to an elevated conduct of doing business by honoring the principles of fair trade, preservation of cultural heritage, and empowerment of women.
