The special hand-embroidered Makahiya design is inspired by our childhood days spent wandering around the neighborhood. It's lightweight and roomy structure is designed for lovely weekend and weekday strolls.
From one hand and one place to another, this piece has a beautiful story of ingenuity. From the weaving mothers of Ambension Silk in Bulacan to the hand-embroiderers in Cebu, and then to our crafter in Marikina and finally, to you.

The gold hand-woven silk fabric is in collaboration with Ambension Silk. Ambension Silk, a social enterprise housed in the Gawad Kalinga Enchanted Farm, is dedicated to revitalizing the silk textile industry in the Philippines through the use of organic Eri silk. They partner with women from the farm’s community.
The embroidery is by the mother artisans from Minglanilla, a town located south of Cebu. These artisans are gathered and lead by Lorna, who has been genuinely passionate about the craft and has already created numerous embroidery designs and patterns. This satchel piece is in collaboration with Anthill Fabric Gallery.
Handcrafted by Jess Rellama, our craftsman in Marikina. His story soon on our blog, “Kwento”.
