We Filipinos have our own unique sense of design, which is distinct from other cultures in Southeast Asia. This is evident in the edifices of churches around the city, the vivid prints on jeepneys, the style of our clothing, and the one-of-a-kind way we produce handicrafts.

Filipinos are also among the most resourceful people; we can make beautiful artisan goods out of recycled material or just a few items. This is why Filipino ingenuity and creativity should always be celebrated!

Here at Karton, we believe that every day is an occasion to admire Filipino workmanship.

We love working with people who proudly do our culture good by creating beautiful pieces as a way of honoring our heritage.

De Rajje

De Rajje, whose name is derived from the founder’s initials, is a brand built on a passion for arts, crafts, and a challenge. De Rajje creates world-class products made from real leather; all of which are painstakingly hand cut and hand sewn: true marks of Filipino artisanship. De Rajje designs a wide variety of interesting things; from custom bags to key chains, each piece is a beautiful work of art.

Christine Lhuillier Candles

“Memories, imagination, old sentiments, and associations are more readily reached through the sense of smell than through any other channel,” writes American poet and physician Oliver Wendell Holmes. We couldn’t agree more! Christine Lhuillier’s thoughtfully-designed line of candles are a treat for your nose. If there was a way to smell luxury, Christine has thought of it. She was inspired by the sights, sounds, and smells of life on the road which you can now enjoy in your home, bedroom, or office. The candles come in a wide variety of delightful scents including French Lavender, Patchouli, Sampaguita, Tropical Grass, White Tea and Ginger, and much more.

Locano

Locano is a brand that embodies our love for quality sleep. It doesn’t get much better than cozying up in a soft, locally woven wool blanket made from Ilocos Sur, a region in the Philippines known for its distinct design philosophy. Through their handmade blankets, Locano wishes to share with everyone the love and warmth of a Filipino home.
