At Uri our work is made possible by a team of strong women, and we like to honour the part they play in our brand by dedicating a design to them.
Christin Yu is an emblem of intercultural design, and her work on East Asian design histories around textile and fashion has helped to reshape the lens around colonial and postcolonial design. Christin is a friend and a mentor, a guiding light in the industry who helped Uri in it's most formative stages. From our sensitivity around native making and styles to zero-waste cutting techniques that maximise resources and minimise waste, we have led by her example. Our handwoven cone-shaped 'Yu' bag is an ode to Chrstin, and we hope to collaborate in the future on a line that unites us.
