Looking back now we realize that this journey started with the simple desire to expose our young daughter to more of the world. We had no idea the magnitude of how this would change our lives.
It all began with an extended family vacation voyaging through the busy cities of South-East Asia. Cities like Tokyo, Seoul, Hong Kong, Singapore, Jakarta, Bali, Siam Reap, Phuket, Langkawi, Chiang Mai, Krabi and Bangkok. Somewhere along the unmapped paths and trails we discovered something truly magical. We found ourselves being drawn further and further away from the cities, towards the remote areas and their local communities. Here, we discovered true humanity and a way of life that is rich in culture, traditions and craft. A universe of “less is more”.
We continued to be drawn back to these remote locations. The relationships formed were deep and the connections eternal. What was once foreign and distant soon became our way of life. Our values shifted, and our lives changed as we embraced what was around us. We found an opportunity to exchange and engage with the local markets. We began to educate ourselves about the people and their way of life. Over the next few years, we became part of the local community embracing the quite and spirituality of the community. It is from these exchanges and discoveries that Organic Findings was born.
Our collections consist of one-of-a-kind discoveries, each imagined by master craftsmen from various cultures. The skills, tools and materials used are all part of a culture and craft that have been developed and passed down through generations. Each piece is created through the hands, hearts, minds and souls of these artists.
It is not easy to convey our experience with words. For example, the kindness of the people, the richness of the gastronomy, the respect for humanity and the pride in the workmanship. These are the things that keep pulling us back. We are grateful to share this with you in the same way that we discovered it. Through these organic findings we found meaning and formed deeper connections.
We personally touch and observe each step of the process. We work directly with the people building each item: from tables to consoles, from statues to art pieces. The treasures you are about to see, were delicately hand-molded, with full attention to detail from talented local artisans.
Thank you for letting us share our story with you; we would like to share these works of love with you too. With a life, a spirit and a soul of their own; each hand selected item has a story to tell and good energy to be treasured.
