FEED agreed to meet up with Hábil Crafts Founder Marvz Conti at the same moment we were and are exploring bringing greens into urban areas and homes, responding to our President’s thoughts that: “If people cannot make it to the mountains or seas to plant, we should bring the forest to them,” Ofelia Bakker-Mananquil ruminated;  “Let’s develop new products together (with Hábil), converge our ideas and efforts to reach out to those who cannot always make it back to nature, through these products, e.g. edible and herbal gardens, we can bring nature into communities, homes, schools, offices, etc. We need portability, modularity and flexibility.”

We celebrate makers from designers, artisans, crafters, and creatives who paved the way for us and from whom we draw inspiration and support.  We are redefining how people interpret and consume the handmade. We support the Filipino craftsmanship and hopefully inspire the next generation of makers.”
