working towards Manila FAME!

 

In September we took time out of our normal designs for a few months to explore natural fibers.

We were lucky to have Designer PJ Aranador visit us in Dumaguete in August and helped us with some product development including this material so we could join Manila FAME, an exporters show under the wings of The Great Women's Project. A successful national project to help women entrepreneurs in the Philippines funded by the Canadian government.

After experimenting with the new product ideas of bowls and bottles, we decided to incorporate the natural fiber into what we know best: Jewelry!  We found this to so much fun and loved the rustic feel of the fiber. What do you think of our new designs?
