Local Design Inspiration

Nowadays, we Filipinos are known all over the world for our creativity and excellent quality when it comes to fashion, jewelry, furniture and design. But why should our work only be highlighted abroad? If you’ve been thinking about celebrating your roots and love for the Philippines in the comfort of your home, here are some some locally made items to help you get started.

National icons

Add some “Pinoy Pride” in your kitchen or dining table with quirky yet very Pinoy items inspired by national icons such as the carabao, jeepney, and bulul.

Local Weaves

Rattan furniture using the solihiya weaving method is a staple in most Filipino households, as are some local handwoven abaca pieces.

Local Art

Contemporary Filipino art has been in the spotlight for various art fairs and exhibits in Asia, Europe and America. Our country has a lot of talented up and coming visual artists. Consider installing one or two (or more) pieces from a local artist in your home.

Local Prints and Design

Add some flavor to your dining experience. For a more traditional look, set your table with loom weaved placemats by our local artisans from the Northern Region. If you’re going for something quirky and cute, take a look at these Pinoy baby bibs.
