For over 30 years, Chrysara has been exporting handcrafted home décor items. Whenever Chrysara would join exhibits and furniture expos like Manila FAME, clients would always ask if there’s a local store they could go to. “Prior to opening Chrysara Nest, our local clients find us at Manila FAME, and beg to come visit the factory because they aren't allowed to buy the items on display,” says Rhea Dumdum-Bautista, Chrysara’s PR Consultant.

To meet the growing demand for interesting pieces, Chrysara owner Alice Reyes and her daughter, Sara Upton opened Chrysara Nest in July 2013. Alice is very hands-on when it comes to design conceptualization, which leads to highly original, quirky, but charming pieces. 

Meanwhile, Sara serves the sales and marketing director. “She is very involved in that she and a team are the ones who go to trade shows around the world, and she deals with local and international clients," says Rhea.

“Chrysara's local patrons are interior designers, shop owners, and people who love things with personality. Our roster of clients include high society, artists, and designers,” she adds. Now that the company has finally opened its local store, that roster will surely expand.
