JACINTO & LIRIO (meaning “Hyacinth” and “Lily”), is a social enterprise that transforms a “pest” into eco-iconic and multi-functional leathergoods sustainably made from water hyacinth, with a mission to empower affected families by the water hyacinth infestation problem through livelihood generation.
The Water Hyacinth has severely infested Philippine waters ever since. It can reduce light and oxygen, change water chemistry, affect local flora and fauna, cause problems in marine transportation, fishing, irrigation, floods, and increased pollution. Here in Jacinto & Lirio however, we transformed the water hyacinth problem into the perfect opportunity to help the planet and its people.
We recognized the need to strengthen the sustainability of community livelihoods using indigenous materials, which is a major source of income in various areas in Asia. Which is why for every purchase of Jacinto & Lirio, we contribute to the community development of our partners so they can keep transforming their families, and their communities for the better.
Jacinto & Lirio provides beautifully handcrafted plant leathergoods which are impressively multi- functional yet stylish conversational-pieces with a lifestyle appeal for professionals, and companies who want to create a strong patriotic, environmental and socio-ethical statement. We make INDIGENOUS LOOK SEXY.
