Join Us and #WeaveNewStories!

AKABA is an ethical lifestyle brand that engages and empowers disadvantaged artisan communities all over the Philippines.

Help us raise awareness for our goal to fund the construction of a livelihood center and weaving school in Ilocos Norte, Philippines. Our crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo officially launches on April 1!

The problem. Today, the centuries-old traditional art of loom weaving in the Philippines is endangered due to unjust trade practices, that lead to unreasonably low income.

What we believe in. Each handwoven textile carries the story of a dedicated artisan and we believe that fair, sustainable trade and social empowerment will revive the waning interest to learn the craft.

What we do. To produce our bags, AKABA collaborates with a network of over a hundred weavers from the northernmost provinces of Ilocos Norte and Isabela, to the islands of Sulu and Basilan in Southern Mindanao. To date, 107 families have benefitted from our efforts of providing increased income, access to basic healthcare services and/or financial support for education of their children.

Our dream. More importantly, we have trained new weavers, and are on our way to establishing a weaving training center to pass on cultural heritage to the younger generation.

Join us and help us #WeaveNewStories.
