Marivi Manaluz is the creator and maker behind GE||BK. Her love of fiber came from a very young age. She was taught how to crochet and knit by her Lola (grandmother) and since then would create special gifts for family and friends. She discovered weaving and macrame over two years ago, and fell in love with the art.

After her second kidney transplant in 2016, she decided to follow her passion. Her design style is eclectic, ranging from modern to bohemian but all incorporating her love of knots.

She continues to challenge herself, trying to take the average knot to new heights. Her pieces range from home decor items to accessories and continues to look for new ways to bring macrame back to the modern world.
