One of the distinct qualities of Filipino Christmas is the length of it: from the time when the year finally hits September and Pinoys begin to play familiar and nostalgic songs, to the celebration of the Feast of the Three Kings in January. Decorating the home in between has become part of what makes it even livelier. Deck the halls, they say, and indeed Filipinos never disappoint.

In the spirit of Filipino Christmas, here are some chic, locally handcrafted home pieces from ITOOH Homestyle’s catalogue that will surely make the season a whole lot merrier:
