“To give consumers access to local or indigenous products by showcasing and connecting local communities, workers, and conscious consumers”
The Abra Indigo Manila icon is a triangle with a vertical line right through it which not onlysignifies our initials but also represents the mountains which traditionally play a vital role inindigenous life and culture. The text of our logo resembles a handwriting look that represents thenature and quality of our products which are intricately handmade by our partners.
The roots of Abra Indigo Manila can be traced back to Namarabar, Penarrubia, Abra. Our products mostly come from the Namarabar Indigo Natural Dye Producers Cooperative which isconnected to the School of Living Traditions in Abra that is a program of the National Commissionof Culture and the Arts to preserve our cultural heritage. However, Abra Indigo Manila also aimsto work with different communities in other parts of the Philippines to get a better glimpse of ourroots.
We believe and value the rich and diverse culture that we have as a country and the importance of patronizing it.
We value the relationships we build with the communities we work with, the workers, and consumers we have.
We aim to be honest with how we operate and do business and see the people we work with as industry partners rather than speaking benevolence over them.
