It all started in 2019 when I was lucky enough to connect with a small group of extremely talented artisans who used the old aged tradition of weaving and from there, I began my journey to rediscover and reclaim my Filipino heritage. Coupled with my love for mother earth and passion to nurture the environment through conscious living AbanEco, was born.
I am a social entrepreneur – providing eco-friendly products, handmade from local Filipino artisans, with a strong focus on environmental impact and community empowerment.
AbanEco is a plastic-free business. Our goal is to shift the mindset on consumerism by going back to natural materials, with an end result where the products are able to return to the earth – not contribute to landfill. We share our message from a place of love and compassion. We are a social enterprise, connecting with the weavers and makers – developing strong relationships, and boosting morale. We are not just about “providing income, but to empower”.
1. The brand is created by a daughter of an immigrant, weaving herself back into her Filipino heritage and advocating for our planet
2. We support the development of livelihood for Filipino artisans, and our products are swathed in culture
3. Every product is 100% from the nature – bamboo, pandan and coconuts, just to name a few
