“This branding scheme contemplates on her contribution to nation-building, through her dressmaking business of over 40 years…Her 20 or so employees were equipped with the vital manufacturing skills of tailoring, sewing, embroidery via machine or hand, hand painting, and beading. She also has a small pool of loyal suppliers who bring her handwoven textiles from across the archipelago, which at times are hand embellished to her specifications.” (Source: Defining a Filipino Heritage Brand in the Digital Age by Paz Esperanza T. Poblador, De La Salle University Center for Business Research and Development Business Notes and Briefings, January 2015, Vol. 3, No. 1).
