ANTHILL (Alternative Nest and Trading/ Training Hub for Indigenous/ Ingenious Little Livelihood seekers) Fabric Gallery is a social and cultural enterprise that works to preserve and promote our Philippine weaving traditions by applying them in contemporary design for everyday essentials to attract younger generation of weavers and weave wearers and provide sustainable livelihood to partner communities. ANTHILL works to promote everyday weave wearing. We provide market access to communities and ensure a sustainable and inclusive supply chain through capacity building programs in product design and innovation, business skills, leadership and financial literacy. In this hub, fabrics are more than just ingredients to fashion; it is where culture meets style; it is collective dreaming; it is a way of life.

This lovely team does not just have some of the most fashionable items in cebu in their store but also do not loose any time to explain philippino history and traditions in detail. I love the way how they combine tradition and modernity.
