About us

Kwaderno by Jacinto&Lirio is a line of statement refillable journals uniquely made from the water hyacinth leather. Born from the passionate work of the brand, Jacinto&Lirio, we communicate its story of creating stylish items from this plant pest in order to bring sustainable economic development to the communities we work with.

Each purchase of a Kwaderno helps us empower our water hyacinth community partners in the Philippines. The water hyacinth, commonly called 'water lily' was once a nuisance to the villages near water bodies, but now it is a beacon of hope for livelihood opportunity and community development.

We want to encourage a movement in you as well through the use of a Kwaderno. With these values and advocacy we encourage youl to use our blank pages to create your ideas and work on your passion. Make a difference and #LiveAStoryWorthTelling.
