3 Things to Love About the R2R Living x Marilen.ph Collection
Fill your space with stylish, artisanal, and functional home pieces
Aside from crafting personal items like bags, wallets, and prints, fashion and design house Rags2Riches is also growing R2R Living, its line of artisanal and functional home pieces. Last February 9, the brand launched its newest collection in collaboration with interior stylist Marilen-Faustino Montenegro, who also recently introduced her new global blog—Marilen Styles.
Here are three reasons why these pieces are perfect additions to your home:
The home accessories are not only beautiful, they are functional too
“I am a believer of investing in good organizing accessories so the floor plant holders and trays were a must,” says Marilen. These pieces were handwoven and handcrafted by the artisans of R2R.
Just think about the different things that you can do with the planters and trays. You can use it as organizers and pieces for a charming vignette.

The collection perfectly combines style and sustainability
The pieces are made using upcycled, overstock cloth, and indigenous fabrics. Each time you buy a piece, you get to help local artisans and their families too. Since many of us are starting to become more mindful about our lifestyles, R2R Living gives us a chance to integrate these changes into our homes.
