All MAAARI marble is made by the artisans of La Roca.
La Roca is committed to bringing economic opportunities back to the Romblon province of the Philippines through the revitalization of its marble manufacturing sector. Though once a booming industry, the marble market suffered a sharp decline when the world trade market saw an influx of cheap, synthetic marble products from Europe and China in the early 1990s.
Several years ago, La Roca founder Regina Escolin discovered dozens of de-commissioned marble factories on the island and has since worked with her partner Giovanni to re-open small hand-carving factories in the area. Marble is a natural, non-toxic stone, is 100% recyclable, and can stand the test of weathering and time. La Roca uses responsibly mined and regulated marble, implements zero-waste policies, and provides fair wages to all its artisans.
The Brass piece:
We are proud to partner with minority/family-owned R&M Fine Jewelers in downtown Los Angeles to produce our Lunar Collection. R&M uses sustainably sourced, recycled metals to cast our pieces. After casting, the pieces are hand-finished and set in our MAAARI studio
Our products are made by human hands and with natural materials. We believe the slight variations in color and veins in the marble are what make them unique and extraordinary.

MAAARI (ma’a’a•ri’) in Tagalog means “what is possible” and “can be done.” In this spirit, our brand philosophy is rooted in these three pillars:
We curate and create the most sustainable and ethical products possible. Committed to social impact, we invest in living systems that reshape our world’s value chains for the better.
We bring meaning and heart to the global marketplace. By providing artisans a space to share the stories behind their craft, their extraordinary brand grows beyond borders.
We preserve and empower cultural identity through the specialization of traditional arts and crafts. Through positive partnerships and relationship building, we modernize age-old artistry for function and style today.
