MAAARI is a design practice rooted in consciousness, community, and culture.


Introducing our mini mother of pearl utensils — a must-have for hosting, these bb delights are perfect for charcuterie, spreads, delicate apps, and desserts.

They're an extension of nature's beauty, with each piece hand-carved from locally harvested shells by the artisans of Ethnic Ventures in Cebu, Philippines. 

After a recent trip to the Motherland, the idea of diaspora resonated deeply in our minds. Contemplating the shared threads and nuances between Filipinos on the islands and those across the globe, we found inspiration for a truly special project and the Piña Capsule.

In pursuit of a meaningful marketplace, we proudly partner with artisans and designers who share our values of quality craftsmanship and mindful consumption.

(ma’a’a•ri’) in Tagalog means “what is possible” and “can be done.”
In this spirit, our brand philosophy is rooted in these three pillars:

  • MAAARI Brand Pillar Icon for Consciousness


    We curate and create the most sustainable and ethical products possible. Committed to social impact, we invest in living systems that reshape our world’s value chains for the better.

  • MAAARI Brand Pillar Icon for Community


    We bring meaning and heart to the global marketplace. By providing artisans a space to share the stories behind their craft, their extraordinary brand grows beyond borders.

  • MAAARI Brand Pillar Icon for Culture


    We preserve and empower cultural identity through the specialization of traditional arts and crafts. Through positive partnerships and relationship building, we modernize age-old artistry for function and style today.
