I got invited to this event via email. When I decided to formed this blog a year ago, I know what purpose it will be --that is to promote Filipino brands. I will blog about the event soon.
This summer, R2R dare you to reclaim your freedom. Go on meaningful adventures, create new and beautiful stories, and take an R2R bag with you on your journey. Come on: let's make this summer count. The bags from the High Seas collection will be available in the R2R store in Glorietta 1 starting Saturday, March 22. Rag2Riches is on the 3rd floor, located between National Bookstore and Vanilla Cupcake Bakery.
"There is humanity woven into every bag."
Rags2Riches Inc. is the Philippines' foremost for-profit social enterprise. We create
eco-ethical fashion and home accessories out of upcycled scrap cloth, organic materials
and indigenous fabrics, and by working with artisans living in the poor communities
across the country.
In a world where fashion is often seen as excess, an R2R bag is proof that style
and sustainability can coexist. By transforming upcycled scrap cloth into beautiful
fashion pieces, we are able to integrate conscientious design into our work.
In a world where fast and cheap labor is sought, R2R places the highest value on
every person's humanity and dignity. We are proud to work with partner artisans who
come from all over the Philippines – from the densely populated communities of the
capital, to the mountain range tribes of the South. R2R is a life and livelihood partner for
these empowered and dignified artisans, as they strive to weave better futures for their
families and communities.
As a social enterprise, we go beyond charity and beyond aid. We create meaningful,
high value, and sustainable trade.
As compassionate entrepreneurs, we strive for success that does not leave anyone
behind. If it's not inclusive, it's not progress.
