About us

Our why

We are progressing to a future where sustainable practices are so important in every stage of the product lifecycle - it's our aim towards a better fashion system. We are more aware of just how damaging fashion practices are to the environment. Our collection is mindful of cultural appropriation. We want to nurture sustainable relationships. This means ensuring that the designs are used with respect and being transparent about every aspect of the supply chain. Connecting with an ancient art-form tradition through design collaborations, we are able to share the stories of age-old craft & tradition. In doing this we are empowering communities.

About the owner, Christine

For harper was created by Christine, she was inspired by the beauty of the culture and craft of the Philippines, being a Filipina herself. She hopes to inspire others by being more mindful consumers and to shed the light on cultural appreciation; a chance to inform others about the rich cultural history and impact attached to designs or patterns.

After working in the public health research industry for 10 years, Christine sought to create a brand that was impactful and conntected to her heritage. Having a love for fashion and design, she hopes for harper to be more than just a brand but a voice for story-telling and an anchor for change.
