HABI: The Philippine Textile Council and Kultura join together to support weaving communities and celebrate Filipino craftsmanship with the Likhang Habi at Kultura bazaar on April 13 to 15 at the SM Mega Fashion Hall.

The bazaar showcases locally grown Philippine cotton, textiles, traditional crafts and uniquely Filipino products: woven Negrense products, handbags made from rattan, raffia, and pandan, personal care items using coconut oil and herbs.  These are artisans and enterprises that keep Filipino traditions alive and relevant today.  

While Kultura highlights Filipino artistry, ingenuity, and heritage in the products it sells in its stores; the Philippine Textile Council, on the other hand, strives to promote local cotton and raises awareness on the importance of keeping our weaving traditions alive.

Some of Kultura’s participating brands include Nooks, EN barong Filipino, Zarah Juan, Rurungan sa Tubod Foundation, Jerschel, Jhazz Footwear, Casa Mercedes, La Obra and Hijo, Gifts & Graces Foundation, Yakan Cooperative, Galvez, Beyond Borders, La Bon Vie, Adorno, P1, Island RKOC, Precious Herbal, Daila, Tropical Shop, Cocobody, Isla Oriente, Lunas, Healthy Pinoy, and Bedrock. 

Kultura and Habi support weaving communities and help them continue with traditional textile products as well developing new ones so that their craft remains relevant today.
