Beautifully-handcrafted fashion accessories with a story to tell
The 45-year-old art of Agsam Weaving renders a breath of new life through Artist and Social Entrepreneur, Gina Nebrida Ty. An accidental Artist, Gina discovered Agsam Weaving during one of her regular visits at her husband's hometown in Surigao del Sur, Philippines. Despite a unique story to tell and Surigaonons' immense talent, Gina learned that the pieces created by Agsam weavers were limited to commercial market within their hometown. Amused and impressed by the ingenuity and craftsmanship of Surigaonon weavers, Gina began collaborating with the weavers to create unique designs, which combine Agsam materials with different local components sourced from various parts in the Philippines. Not only did this collaboration bring about viable commercial marketability, both to the local and global market, it has provided these women a sustainable livelihood as they showcase their proud heritage and tradition.
Our unique collection of handcrafted fashion accessories is made from a wild fern plant called Agsam. This 40-year-old Agsam weaving heritage has been handed down, from generation to generation, among the cultural community women.
Skillfully handwoven with precision, artistry and love.
