We purchase skillfully handcrafted products made only from RECYCLED or INDIGENOUS materials directly from the families in the Philippines. This allows for a more secure stable income, decent housing and all the basic essentials for a normal livelihood. These beautifully handcrafted products are made from clothing, wood, plastics,cotton, rubber, etc. All items that would otherwise end up in a landfill. INDIGENOUS materials are also a huge resource for the people of the Philippines. . .Bamboo, Abaca, Ratten, The Rice Plant also used to make the sweeping brooms pictured here. Freshwater Pearls, and an endless variety of shells such as CAPIZ used to produce the Lotus Flower Candle Holders pictured here now in stock. I have traveled to the Philippines 3 times and am now planning my 4th trip in March to meet with families and purchase a larger variety of products.
