    NY NOW Welcomes Back LIKHÂ’s Upcycled Coconut Animal Planters

    Booth #1462 Handmade Global Design

    LIKH means “to create,” a celebration of the makers - Filipino artisans whose talent remains hidden from anyone not within a stone's throw - and their beautiful creations. Launched in 2018, the company seeks to grant these makers a channel to reach an ever-growing global market. They currently work with seven different artisan groups in the Philippines - ranging from nonprofits, farming communities, small family workshops, and women groups.  They have established themselves with almost 50 retailers across the United States, Australia, and Japan, have participated in heavily curated craft shows such as the Renegade Craft Fair, and have collaborated with brands  such as Pottery Barn, Williams-Sonoma, West Elm, and Anthropologie in the California Bay Area.  

    All of the items created by these artisans are hand-made, and they are rooted deeply within Filipino tradition, blending centuries-old tradition with modern aesthetic. LIKH offers home, lifestyle, and fashion accessories such as mother-of-pearl coasters, wooden jewelry, and hand-woven palm clutches. Their most prominent collection is their series of coconut coir animal planters.


    Awarded “Best New Product” in 2018 by NY NOW, the premier retail market trade show in the United States, LIKHÂ’s animal planters upcycle a fiber-rich byproduct found in coconuts, forming a durable, air-tight, moisture-absorbing planter that’s eco-friendly! These planters are individually crafted by artisans without the use of molds, and are entirely produced from memory, which means no two planters will be exactly identical to one another. 

    The collection includes various animals with matching monikers to grant each of them their own unique and individual flairs. Benji the Tiny Bear, Carlo the Corgi, Dara the Dachshund, Olivia the Owl, and Hector the Hedgehog are just a few of the animal planters that the collection has to offer. At the 2019 NY NOW Winter Market, they are unveiling new designs which include Valena the Blue Whale, Blanca the Bunny, Hugo the Hippo, Figaro the Frog, and smaller versions of some of their classic designs. 

    The coconut coir is woven to replicate the general shape of the animals, and other materials such as wood chips are used to accent and detail the animals. These planters come in different sizes, and they can fit a variety of different plants such as succulents, bulbs, air plants, ferns, flowers, more.  

    Art comes in all shapes and forms, but often times it is hidden from the world due to geographical, political, and social barriers. As a social enterprise, LIKH is devoted to improving the social and economic conditions of its partners by transcending the geographical barriers that hinder them from accessing outside markets. LIKH helps to ensure its artisans can rely on their skills and craft in order to lead healthy and sustainable livelihoods. 

    Make sure you catch LIKH at NY NOW Retail Renaissance from February 3-6, 2019 at Booth #1462 - Handmade Global Design.
