Here in the Philippines we are accustomed to the notion that international goods are always better than local. Though mostly true, it’s certainly not always the case. The Philippines consists of a number of islands and provinces, all of which have their own different sub-cultures, backgrounds and traditions, which gives their locally made products their own unique flavor. From native handicrafts, local delicacies, and remarkable food, to clothing, gear, and modern innovative products, there’s no shortage of great merchandise that are conceptualized, handcrafted and manufactured here locally. These days, there are huge amounts of talented and creative people from all over the country that are designing and creating world-class goods that will rival the best the world has to offer. This is a compilation of people and companies that make extraordinary products while maintaining their Filipino spirit – Simpy put, Proudly Pinoy.
