Indigenous materials highlighted at the OTOP Marketplace

Manila FAME, Asia’s Design and Lifestyle Event, emphasizes the massive potential of the grassroots level of the Philippine export industry. The One Town One Product (OTOP) Marketplace promotes Philippine craftsmanship and artisanship through locally made products from select regions in the Philippines.

“This year’s OTOP Marketplace features contemporized products made of local materials such as water hyacinth, bamboo, burnt wood, coco guinit, twigs, tikog, and a variety of natural fibers found in the different regions of the Philippines,” says Jinggoy Buensuceso,who curated the special setting.
