Aside from the collections in our craft shop, we are situated in the iconic ILAW with its coffee shops, bistros and unique architecture.
The Kullaaw collection tells the artists and artisans of Baguio that we are here to support them and promote their handicrafts and encourage them to be more creative. We communicate this message not only in the promotion platform that we use; but also, in the quality, craftsmanship and uniqueness found in every aspect; as well as the representation of the artist’s crafts. These are the same values that breathe life into our heart and soul.
Understanding criteria, such as product uniqueness, cultural and historical integrity, aesthetics, quality of workmanship and the artist’s connection to the product, is essential to establishing the authenticity of arts & crafts. Being able to watch the artisan create their products, having knowledge of the craft’s utilitarian function, local production and scarcity value, as well a label or certificate guaranteeing authenticity are also highly desirable.
Craft production, and gender & economic development:
with a focus on the traditional role of women as producers of handicrafts, and how manufacturing handicrafts has empowered and can empower women socially, psychologically, and economically.
The messages and meanings of art:
are often quite different for each owner. For instance, tourists visiting the same destination will leave with different handicrafts, which reflect their unique experience -largely based on their own individuality in relation to the destination, as well as the depth of their knowledge about the location.
The use of creative eco-friendly packaging in our operations is no longer an option – it’s a necessity.
We plan to use cotton tote bags as we want to keep our environmental impact as low as possible. Therefore, we will use organic, recycled cotton or calico (an unbleached cotton material that undergoes less processing).
