The story behind At Uri their work is made possible by a team of strong women, and they like to honour the part they play in the 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. From their sensitivity around native making and styles to zero-waste cutting techniques that maximise resources and minimise waste, they have led by her example. The handwoven cone-shaped 'Yu' bag is an ode to Christin.
