Whilst travelling in South East Asia some time later, Yen by chance came across a designer whose mission was to create ethical bags and accessories using repurposed and recycled materials. Yen was impressed with the imaginative way in which the materials had been reinvented and the positive impact that their creation was having on the local community. Excited by their creativity, her passion was rekindled.
Scouring the globe looking for designers, each with their own mission and creative story, Yen made it her aim to share their brilliant products - showcasing the quality of their craftsmanship and the individuality of their designs. She decided to create a platform to tell their stories and support their visions and show the world what can be achieved with reclaimed and repurposed materials. Then Paguro was born!
Paguro is the Latin name for hermit crab, which Jen sees as a creature of inspiration. A hermit crab finds an empty shell, takes it and carries it around for protection. So by using a natural product and putting it to good use, a Paguro is nature’s own upcycle!
