Design PH takes 12 unique Philippine brands that represent The Art of the Craftsman and brings them to the global stage of Maison et Objet on 06 – 10 September 2013 at the Paris Nord Villepinte. For the show, Tadeco Home will introduce its distinct kind of artisanship that takes the past into the present.
From its roots as a livelihood program, Tadeco Home works with ethnic communities in Mindanao, particularly the T’boli and the Mandaya, to create home accents and lighting pieces that showcase the workmanship of the craftsmen, at the same time staying true to their mission of uplifting these communities and preserving their culture and heritage. Tadeco Home’s products are made of 100% indigenous materials like banana fibers and abaca. The craftsmanship of woven textiles, like that of t’nalak and dagmay, are also utilized in their products, taking age-old tradition and weaving them into modern designs and creations.
Design PH will also feature the design-forward creations of Betis Crafts, Industria Home, Ito Kish, Luisa Home by Luisa Robinson, MASAECO, Mayumi by CSM Philippines, Peter and Paul, Inc., Schema by Kalikasan Crafts, Triboa Bay Living, Vito Selma, and Kenneth Cobonpue’s Hive.
