ABOUT THE MAKER

Sesotunawa is a T’boli-owned social enterprise that produces recycled brass jewelry through practicing the art of Temwel. The modern Tau Temwel uses upcycled brass and other metal scraps from local junk shops and transforms these metals into intricate designs made in collaboration with MAAARI. Each brass piece pays homage to the Tboli tradition, folklore, and spiritual connection to nature. The transformation involves a complex process of wax rolling, clay molding, and molten metal casting that usually takes days to complete.

Sesotunawa is a union of two Tboli words, “sesotu” or “to make one”, and “nawa” or “spirit”. It literally stands for the spirit of working together. Maaari is deeply honored to work together with the T’boli artisans through our skill sharing workshops and design collaborations. This helps strengthen our partnership with Sesotunawa  and mutually teaches us skills and cultural traditions to share with all of you.

 

TAKE CARE

Brass naturally oxidizes over time. Renew your piece's shine with lemon, baking soda, and a polishing cloth. To delay oxidation, keep your MAAARI jewelry away from moisture.
