It’s always a good thing to love and buy locally-made products, because often, these come from small to medium enterprises which support Filipino artisans. One example is Tahanan Furniture, which products are made by crafters from Cebu.

“Tahanan aims to craft consciousness in the Filipino home with bespoke furniture and curated home goods made by different Filipino artisan communities,” says the team via Instagram direct messaging. The brand launched its first collection called Things You Call Home in the fourth quarter of 2020, and it is an ode to Pinoy design and vivid memories its nostalgic forms bring back.

Take a look:
