Kamaro'an, the place to live.

 
 
 

Inspired by Taiwanese indigenous culture, Kamaro’an explores natural materials and delicate craftsmanship through simplistic designs. We believe in both creativity and precision that hands can bring to life. 

The name Kamaro’an originates from Pangcah, an indigenous language, it means “the place to live”. Our ideology is to provide culturally related employments in Hualien to welcome youths to come home. Each of our products is crafted by local indigenous weavers. 

Kamaro’an is officially launched at the 2015 Taiwan Designers’ Week, and were awarded Rising Asian Talent by Maison & Objet Paris in 2017. 

Kamaro’an present lighting and accessory collections that revives traditional craft via contemporary design. Besides featuring the brand’s own products, we collaborate with indigenous artist Sapud Kacaw to introduce his vigor driftwood furnitures.
 

Kamaro'an在阿美族語裡的意思是「住下來吧」,一方面是代表產品都是部落年輕人手工製作的,我們希望多增加一些在地的工作機會,期許部落的年輕人返鄉住下來吧;另一層意思則是代表,Kamaro'an做的是生活居家的產品與配件,用生活的角度帶大家認識更多部落的工藝與文化。

花蓮港口部落的工藝很迷人,凝結了當地長久以來的風土民情,沒有太多的裝飾與規則,以實用為旨,卻又帶著生活的美感,以及敬重自然與大地和諧共處的精神。也因此Kamaro'an不太創造新的設計故事或造型意涵,只需要順著部落生長出來的工藝和創作,用更生活化的視角延伸成產品,慢慢做出更多日常起居裡的好物。

Kamaro'an的產品特色是簡約而帶有高精準度的工藝,以生活視角擴展了部落工藝的廣度,再用工業設計的思維使部落手工製作的產品帶著扎實的細節。拉高的市場定位,讓部落的工藝師有利潤空間製作極致卻仍帶有手工溫度的工藝。

Kamaro’an的經營團隊有三位,大家因為不同的背景、專長和追求的理想而聚集在一起。Tipus是部落青年, 專長是環境規劃設計,近年回到部落從事文化與工藝學習、參與藝術創作工作;雲帆和立祥都是工業設計出身,雲帆樂於尋找工藝、設計、產業和市場的平衡,立祥則是喜歡鑽研材質並追求精準細節。Kamaro’an用高質感工藝設計的方法來帶動部落產業,希望家鄉可以一直有個跟文化相關的工作迎接返鄉的年輕人。

Kamaro'an的夥伴有部落資深的工藝家,以她們多年的創作脈絡為基礎,與我們共同開發產品;也有多位年輕的部落女孩,一起加入輪傘草與編織系列的製作行列。我們分享利潤並支付合理且尊重專業的工資,一起走得長長遠遠!
