The Museum Foundation of the Philippine's (MFPI) annual fundraiser and poster child, the MaArte Fair, is on its 7th year this year, and it's happening this August 28, 29 and 30, from Friday to Sunday, from 10 am to 10 pm, at the Rockwell Tent.
MFPI's MaArte 2015: Craft, Art, Food & Design Fair promises to surprise and entice lovers of the unique and the new with over 70 artisans to choose from.
My favorites like Filip + Inna, Abre Linea and Amarie will be there, but be prepared to discover new products, social enterprises and entrepreneurs to support! I'm going to be looking out for these:
Statement Theory Cake Stand
T'nalak Home paper and pillows
Calidad Espanola chorizos
Stanford & Shaw Ginger Ale
Nipa Foods Cashew Butter
I'm almost afraid for my August budget.
But then again, MaArte Fair is all about shopping for a cause, supporting not only MFPI's fundraising efforts but also encouraging local craftsmen and communities to push their design sensibilities forward and create products made from locally sourced and indigenous materials that bring pride and joy to those who wear and use them.
