We had the serendipitous luck last week to e in Manila at the same time as Artisan trade show FAME and Manila Design Week. Hosted by the gracious Jen of MUNI, there were some great conversations around women weaving change, working with artisans, and the state of design and ethical fashion in this great country.
We will definitely be back for more. In the meantime, check out our top 5 finds from the ladies we met:
Filip + Inna - Len Cabili
inspired embroidery and patterns on beautiful basics
AMarie - Anne Marie Saguil
fashion forward clutches and tunic dresses with pops of colour
Vesti - Martha Rodriguez
bags galore with indigenous textiles with a story
Tala Luna - Jen Horn
these boots were made for walking
Biyahe - Terri Jayme-Mora
bags that make us want to just pack up and go
And to end, a short snippet on everything we saw. There’s nothing like being there yourself.
