We've always been fans of locally made goods, may it be clothing, cosmetics, skincare, or home goods. It's undeniable that the Filipino craftsmanship is superb! If you want to support the Pinoy artisans and spruce up your life with amazing native products, we urge you to check out Likhang HABI Market Fair from your home!
The Likhang HABI Market Fair is going online for the first time at www.shophabifair.com so we can all safely shop from home. The annual trade fair used to be held at the Glorietta Activity Center.
"Since we are not allowed to gather in large groups because of the pandemic, the online edition of the Likhang HABI Market Fair is our way of helping to sustain the local weaving economy," says HABI president Adelaida Lim. "And we urge our HABI friends to join us in this endeavor."
Annually, the Likhang HABI Online Market Fair showcases sustainable and ethical fashion and lifestyle products representing various weaving communities from Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. This year, they've invited over 30 merchants.
