Time to go treasure hunting at the MaArte Fair this weekend! Happening this August 28-28 at the Penthouse of 8 Rockwell in Makati (a swanky upgrade from the Rockwell Tent, its home for the past 7 years), the MaArte fair presents over 70 handpicked retailers to showcase proudly Pinoy finds, many of which are usually only available to overseas buyers, or have no venue to showcase their work.
Organized by the Museum Foundation of the Philippines, this annual fundraiser provides a venue to support export-quality products, while raising funds to support the National Museum. “Our challenge is to ‘Evolve the Filipino Craftsman,” shared Maritess Pineda, Museum Foundation president. “Over the past years that Rockwell (Tent) has been our home, we have attracted a wider market of individuals who appreciate the indigenous work of the Filipino, for the modern lifestyle. Fabrics, baskets, jewelry, clothing, and a myriad of new accessories will be available to our buyers.” Oh, and delectable gastronomic discoveries, too!
Here’s a sneak peek at what’s in store for you this weekend:
