Tala Handle Bags from the artisans of Tabok, Kalinga with the support of Florence Ao-Wat. Each piece are wrapped with backatrap loom handwoven Kalinga textile.
The Ao-Way family has been our collaborator for over 5 years. Coming from the lineages of Jenny Bawer-Young, Aunty Florence also came from a family of weavers and have promoted weaving culture through her business, Kinwa Etnika.
The Bawer family has been championing the Kalinga culture for decades. Papa Sapi is an incredible storyteller who we love visiting during our immersive trips. He's toured his work across the globe bringing awareness of Kalinga culture and traditions. To this day, his family continues on his legacy with his children who are revered Kalinga Master Artists and have become our partners over the years including Jenny Bawer-Young and Ophelia Bawer-Addom.
