ANTHILL, R2R, Filip+Inna, & Woven were prominently featured during the fashion show.  Each piece in the Artisan Made Philippines Capsule Collection represents the beautiful, handcrafted, hand woven & artisan made products made by Philippine Social Enterprises & brands that are helping to create, sustain, uplift & improve the lives of the artisans creating each piece.  

From creating weaving centers through a Back to the Loom project (Filip + Inna), to creating a better future for the artisans and nanays (mothers) of Payatas (via R2R-Rags2Riches) & creating master & apprentice programs to cultivate & continue to keep indigenous weaving traditions alive and thriving (ANTHILL), and working hand in hand with the embroiders, sewers & weavers of Basey using tikog leaves & natural materials to create beautiful products (Woven), we at Artisan Made Philippines are proud & excited to share these products with you here in the US & beyond.
