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.
