Woodworkers of the Philippines
Nestled in the heart of the Philippines is a beautifully talented family-run workshop still employing ancient techniques to their acacia wood pieces. Passed down from grandfather to grandchild, the art of carving a wooden shoe or “bakya” influenced their current homewares craft. Thanks to their work, they have become a cornerstone of their community providing training and employment. We also love that this enterprise is run by the women of the family!
