Each piece tells a story, inviting you to appreciate and be excited by the craftsmanship, designs, and rich textures of our culture. This summer, fall in love with the Philippines.

Our Summer Romance collection features resort wear in lightweight fabrics, perfect for every moment spent in the sunshine. Playful patterns meet neutral tones, giving you the perfect palette for summer style. Here’s a rundown of our collection and tips on how to style different pieces!

Native bags

Handmade by artisans in Marikina – a city renowned for crafting high-quality accessories – these vibrant clutches swap leather for natural fibers and threads for straw, giving you the perfect summer accessories. 

Statement earrings

Never underestimate what a pop of color can add to an outfit! Hand-beaded by mothers-turned-artisans, these everyday statement earrings draw inspiration from our nation’s colorful festivals and diverse culture. 


Floral caftans & ponchos

The Philippines is home to a variety of plants, flowers, and greenery. Take inspiration from our lush surroundings by choosing a green floral-printed caftan; a simple, one-and-done outfit for summer.

Dreamy eyelet dresses

Designed locally, our breezy eyelet dress is paired with hand-beaded sampaguita earrings for a fresh, feminine look. 


Bright shawls

Shawls make multi-purpose summer essentials. Here, we’ve styled a brightly colored one into a trendy sarong, paired with a men’s embroidered polo. Perfect for the poolside!

Pretty paisley pastels

Everyone’s got a go-to tank top in their wardrobe. Add a summery touch to your outfits by pairing your favorite solid-toned tank with a paisley print skirt. Layer dainty jewelry like semi-precious stone necklaces and bracelets; mix and match with pearls for added shine.


It’s not summer without Philippine pearls! Our South Sea collection is cultivated in the waters of Palawan from Pinctada Maxima oyster. Timeless and luxurious, these are luxurious island girl essentials. 

Batik summer

An easy way to celebrate fun prints and patterns is by opting for batik-inspired pieces. This flowy yellow batik-print skirt is a great choice; we’ve matched it with a peach blouse featuring embroidered sleeves, definitely an outfit made for sunshine! 

Handcrafted hats

A classic summer texture, nothing says summer like straw hats! Take one with you to the beach as a stylish yet practical accessory. 

Abaca shoes 

Step into summer with our abaca slip-ons. Featuring a signature abaca sole, each shoe is handcrafted by artisans from a homegrown enterprise in Laguna. 

In addition to fashionable resort wear, our homeware collection offers decorative yet functional summer-ready accessories featuring distinctive textures from our different provinces


Native to the Ilocano region, Inabel is a colorful, handwoven fabric made from cotton yarns, commonly made into blankets or pillows. A craft handed down over generations, the Inabel color palette consists of indigo, green, black, gray, and yellow, while patterns include flowers, leaves, trees, and other elements of nature. 


Raffia is an abundant native material from palm leaves which can be handwoven and even crocheted into various items. Our raffia dinner accessories include charming placemats, handmade by Bicolano artisans.


Mother of Pearl

Cherished for its iridescence and understated elegance, mother of pearl can take on many forms – from picture frames, to dinnerware, jewelry boxes, and more. Our mother of pearl home items are sourced from Cebu and carefully hand-polished by local craftsmen. 


Also called Windowpane Oysters, capiz are edible but mostly harvested for their shells. Traditionally used for windows, today they are upcycled by Cebuano artisans into iridescent multi-purpose trays, hand-painted charger plates, coasters, and more.
