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

The bazaar showcased 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.
