Justine Gilbuena

Justine opened her online shop in May of 2016 with just one item listed, an enamel pin inspired by one of her favorite coming-of-age movies. She started designing because she loves the idea of sharing her tiny pieces of art with other people in a more tangible way. Some of her designs are inspired by her childhood, growing up in a Filipino household, surrounded by old Singer sewing machines and danish butter cookie tins filled with needles and thread. She also loves to create items based off of the little things that make her happy: films, books, forest findings, tea and croissants.
