Linea Etnika is a Filipino artisanal brand inspired by heritage and powered by women. The brand embraces the slow fashion movement and advocates to enable traditional handloom weaving to flourish by making weaves mainstream. Over the years, we have produced retail clothing, shoes and fashion accessories for women which have showcased Yakan Weaves from Zamboanga City and Basilan. The brand aesthetic adheres to timeless, elegant and versatile fashion which allows freedom of movement and expression. In 2020, we ventured into home furnishings with Linea Etnika Casa when staying at home became the new normal. Linea Etnika is an avenue to collaborate with communities and like minded brands who value women empowerment, dignity of work, loving local and making things happen with gratitude. It is deeply rooted in Zamboanga City because of a relationship Maria Clara Lorenzo Lobregat started with the Yakan Weaving Village in Zamboanga. Caling Lobregat as she was fondly called is known as Nana del Ciudad (mother of the city) and a culture champion. She continues to inspire the brand as she turns 100 in heaven this year. She is the late grandmother of Linea Etnika co-founder, Looie Lobregat, who believes that the brand’s mission is to nurture sustainably. We have a direct relationship with the Yakan People in Zamboanga City and their network of over 20 women weavers. The connection goes beyond purchasing precious Yakan weaves and product development. We have been involved in infrastructure projects to improve the weaving centers, cement common pathways, upgrade the community toilet and drainage system, as well as landscaping the surroundings through both private and government funding. We knew that 2021 would be special even amidst this pandemic because of our 5th anniversary in April. We imagined celebrating meaningfully and planned with our brand values in mind. Here we introduce the La Hermosa earrings from our Mascota Collection to salute our 5th. We also feature Yakan Bucket Hats from our Village Finds Collection. Thank you universe for the paths we’ve crossed, for the humans we’ve connected with, for the lessons we’ve learned and for allowing us to remain true to our core. We hope our products bring you joy and contentment!!
