Kultura launched MAGARA, a premium artisanal shop-in-shop at its SM Makati boutique yesterday, September 9. The shop showcases must-have pieces such as exquisitely handwoven piña tops by Crafts for a Cause's Rurungan sa Tubod Foundation; hand-knotted necklaces with baroque pearls and other indigenous materials from Joyce Orena's Transformer collection; new statement jewelry with semi-precious stones from Tim Tam Ong; and elegant shell clutches and minaudieres from Cebu.

Those who are always on the lookout for items for the home are in for a treat as well! Accent pieces like curtain tassels and lamps made with indigenous materials like shell and ostrich eggs are also available. MAGARA is located inside Kultura at the 2nd level of SM Makati. 

If you're looking for pieces to add to your space, here are some of the must-haves that we recommend:
