About

Empowering women artisans in the Philippines

ABOUT US
We call ourselves the Dream Team of Anapla - a team of women who were given a dream of bringing themselves and their families out of the circle of poverty through the art of embroidery.

According to the World Bank, resources in the hands of women boost household spending and benefits children. We are working to empower the native women of the Philippines to have the opportunity to send their children to school and provide for their families - most of the women we work with are widows and did not have a source of income before this cooperative was created. We practice Fair Trade labor practices and pay more in wages than what's available on the island.

My mother, who retired to the Philippines after a career in NYC, started this cooperative once she saw the need for an industry in the island she lives in - especially for the women who have lived on the margins of society for so long. This is a life line, a hope, and a source for dreams that may have never been realized before.

••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

Everything is shipped to my home in NYC, where I then sell by the piece. If you have any questions or you're interested in bulk orders or any custom work, please let me know! We are able to make changes quickly, the transit time from the Philippines is the largest challenge. I have a very large cache of these calendars on hand in my pet-free/smoke-free home that we are looking to sell to keep these women in business.
