Copy of CAROLIN DEKEYSER 05
Carolin Dekeyser grew up traveling the world with her father, Bobby, as he built his luxury outdoor furniture brand, Dedon. As a child she lived in the Philippines, the company’s second home. After gaining experience at Dedon, Carolin turned her attention to Compostela, a project initiated by the Dekeyser & Friends foundation. A sustainable rainforest village on the Philippine island of Cebu, Compostela was built to rehouse scavengers living on the Cebu City dump.
While helping the women of Compostela turn their artisanal skills into marketable products, Carolin had the idea for Nay Palad. She conceived it as a friends-and-family company that would create magical destinations and make, discover and retail hand-made objects from around the world, building an engaged community of friends and fellow travelers along the way.
