Christmas is always celebrated early here in the Philippines. When the BER months come, expect to see the start of Christmas decors being displayed. With Christmas fast approaching, a homemaker like me can get really excited and at the same time overwhelmed as to where to go shopping for holiday decors.
Good thing Kultura Filipino, the one stop shop where you can avail all things Filipino launched Christmas Naturally, a pre-holiday bazaar that carries Kultura’s new collection of homespun Christmas decor and gifts. Christmas Naturally also launched new selections of “Crafts for a Cause” advocacy line.
I was able to get first dibs on their holiday decors as well as their advocacy line “Crafts for a Cause”.
Trees, angels, balls and all things glittery, shiny and bright filled Kultura Filipino, located at the 2nd floor of SM Makati.
This is perfect if you want to give a room an accent. If only I can put this in our apartment.
This giant wreath made of native balls was a huge hit. I even heard a few people wanting to buy it.
Surreal that there’s a harpist playing angelic music!
Lots of Santas to choose from.
No excuse not to have one.
Senator Loren Legarda graced the event and showed her support for Kultura Filipino and Crafts For A Cause.
Crafts For A Cause is Kultura’s own advocacy program that has brought together products from different livelihood programs. Collection includes bags and purses, necklaces and earrings, candle holders and other table tops all made from recycled materials.
Recycled bags made of ketchup, juice and even tomato sauce plastics. You can use these instead for your grocery or as your second bag.
It’s also very affordable. For every purchase, you’ve helped the environment by eliminating the use of plastics and at the same time give compassion to our less fortunate brothers & sisters who have made these recycled things.
Recycled soda can cap/lid made into a lovely necklace and bag. How amazingly pretty are these?! Too bad I didn’t see this in person as I would’ve bought the necklace, I’d definitely wear it.
Cute jeepney & pedicab made out of recycled tins, wood and metal.
Here are some gift ideas you can find at Kultura Filipino as they offer a wide variety of products ranging from home decor & furnishings, clothes, bags, accessories and yes even food.
