Christmas: Decorate Philippine-Made

Red and green flowers made out of sinamay,

bought in a local trade fair that featured products from the Philippine regions.

Sinamay is made out of natural plant fibers

and is a common, popular material for all sorts of Philippine crafts.

 

Time spent over at Twitter world has inspired the birth of Curious Philippines Campaigns/ CuriousPHCampaigns.

This post belongs to the the #BuyPhilippineMade campaign.

Cultural mapping involves a community identifying and documenting local cultural resources. Through this research cultural elements are recorded – the tangibles like galleries, craft industries, distinctive landmarks, local events and industries, as well as the intangibles like memories, personal histories, attitudes and values. After researching the elements that make a community unique, cultural mapping involves initiating a range of community activities or projects, to record, conserve and use these elements. …the most fundamental goal of cultural mapping is to help communities recognize, celebrate, and support cultural diversity for economic, social and regional development.”
