Welcome and thank you so much for stopping by for my story. My why...
It all started in 2019 when I was lucky enough to connect with a small group of extremely talented artisans who used the aged old tradition of weaving and there, my journey began to rediscover and reclaim my Filipino heritage.
We want to better our environment through care and nourishment. We want to showcase our culture; celebrate it, expose it to the world, all the while, producing sustainable handicrafts.
And that is what I hope to do with AbanEco.
To source pieces that are not only beautiful, but are functional, eco-friendly and ‘feel good’ - all made from natural materials that someday, return to the earth. This is our message on conscious consumerism.
Today, AbanEco continues to play a major role in the financial well-being of local artisans, who are slowly finding their way to economic independence through the increasing popularity of their handmade products.
Come and join the AbanEco movement, to celebrate Mother Earth. To support and empower communities. To be part of the solution.
Love and Light xx
