Commencing in 2008, our manufacturing is a grass roots process using traditional harvesting methods, woven in the time-honored manner mainly by the women in our local community.
Our main materials are sea grass, karagumoy, abaca and buri.
Bicol Sweetgrass Handicrafts is a family and community-oriented business with many of local community engaged in every aspect of production including growing the fibers, harvesting, weaving, framing and sewing. We also engage specialist weavers for some of the more intricate products.
For most of our team this is their main source of income and we are proud to have created a business that has sustained benefits for so many families for more than a decade. Today, the major challenge is bringing on the new generation into the industry to keep it viable.
Keeping it fresh is our key to longevity. To remain viable, we are constantly looking to create new looks, new products and crossover to new markets with products for the increasing environmentally sensitive tourism sector, where we supply eco-friendly products for guests to enjoy, thankfully replacing the one time use of plastic products.
Our continued success has been helped enormously by invites to industry events where we have the opportunity to display our products and meet potential customers. Our product lines include reusable shopping baskets, handbags, place mats, trays, hampers, storage units, food covers, waste bins, and made to order units.
In these challenging times we are increasing our online presence and adopting e-commerce platforms for wider customer engagement.
