The essence of the name Tinay stands for great appreciation, creativity, and a love for domestic life. It means being enthusiastic about one's life and the beauty of nature. It is feeling the most harmonious at home and finding pleasure in decorating it. 

My real name is Christina. Tinay is a childhood nickname my mom and papa gave me. I am a curious and conscious creator of pieces that bridge function and art for your self, your space or play. 

Tinay as a brand is run by a one-woman team. It is a passion project turned into opportunity. The brand is an avenue for sharing curated pieces that spark joy, and more importantly, pieces Tinay creates by hand. At the moment, the conscious creator is working with resin, acrylic, wood, and gifts from our dear mother earth.
