Kultura’s Filipino Design Studio creates an unparalleled vision towards Filipino craftsmanship. They give spotlight to distinct Filipino talents and promote the preservation of Philippine heritage, culture, and fashion all in one space. 

Along with Kultura’s own products, they serve as a platform for a varied array of local artists and enterprises. Giving them a platform to unveil the majority of their newest collection to the community and exhibit how homegrown creativity combines longevity and beauty. 

As this pop-up event also elevates the visibility of female artisans, a large proportion of contributors were female. The majority are mothers, while a small percentage are young ladies who design bold fashion items while pushing hard to expose a broader audience to local artistry.

Sustainable Crafted Finds

In addition to supporting local talent, Kultura also has a space for sustainability.
