Abacá   / ah-bə-KAH /


People, places & tradition. Telling age-old stories
with a modern aesthetic.

Carefully designed and selected handmade items
and found objects. 
We believe every place has a story to tell,
every culture something to offer. 

We aim to support communities and preserve
traditional craft. 





A portion of all proceeds goes to Right Start Foundation,
a non-profit, non-government organization for
underprivileged Filipino children.


Manila, Philippines.


The process


Abaca leaves are picked, treated,
sun-dryed, and made into twine


Dye used for coloring abaca twine;

these are individually mixed per
color and by batch. Shades may
vary slightly


Weaving one of our Malinao Backpacks.
