What does "Dia" or "Dia Guild" mean?
Dia is a genderless Malay word meaning “she/he/them” and also refers to our greater hope to Directly Impact Artisans. As a Greek prefix, Dia also refers to going “through, across, between.” A “guild” refers to an association of craftsmen, merchants, or people in pursuit of a common goal. You can read more about Dia’s goals and brand mission on the About Us page.
Why Southeast Asia?
Southeast Asia is home to some of the richest and oldest craft legacies in the world. Dia’s co-founders, who are all Malaysian, realized there were precious products and stories that weren’t getting enough global recognition. Dia is passionate about the region it calls home.
What is an "artisanal" brand?
An artisanal brand is one that focuses on craft and quality rather than mass production and scale; their production process is partly or entirely done by hand, and typically involves heritage craft skills.
