KINGS OF THEIR CRAFT

The an­nual arts and crafts fair ArteFino re­turns this month to the Philip­pine cap­i­tal. With its proudly Filipino out­look, ArteFino is a plat­form that cel­e­brates Filipino cre­ativ­ity and crafts­man­ship. The fair will show­case the best of the coun­try’s ar­ti­sanal prod­ucts that use in­dige­nous ma­te­ri­als cou­pled with in­no­va­tive ideas that chan­nel Filipino life, style and tra­di­tions. The or­gan­is­ers aim to cre­ate a sus­tain­able, long-term busi­ness net­work between de­sign­ers and lo­cal – and of­ten vul­ner­a­ble – com­mu­ni­ties where the unique­ness of the prod­ucts them­selves and the sto­ries be­hind them en­cour­age con­sumers to con­nect with their home­land.
