STUDIO MUYU

Studio MU / YU is an artisanal woodcraft brand encompassing slow-made jewellery, bags, and lifestyle products. MU / YU is a romanisation of the Chinese characters ‘木语’, which translates to ‘the language of wood’. Every handcrafted wood trinket tells a story, and no two pieces are the same. Studio MU / YU strives to showcase the elegant imperfections of wood. Through distinctive wooden grains, contrasting layers of light and dark rings, and exquisite textures, the beauty of wood permeates time and speaks to us through subtle details.
