ArteFino: Craft Fair for Filipino Artisans


Filipino Artisans at Their Finest

Artefino 1

ArteFino debuts at 8 Rockwell on August 25 to 27, redefining the much sought-out craft fair that launches the holiday buying season.

As a matter of fact, over 70 select retailers join the collective, as it gears to bring unique offerings that sometimes are available only to the overseas buyer, or simply have no venue to present their work.

Internationally known visual and furniture designer Ito Kish is the curator and chief storyteller. Vendors working together, under Kish, will provide a tapestry for all good things Filipino.

Immerse not only in beautiful everyday objects, but also in living traditions. Develop a deeper appreciation for the ingenious craftsmanship of the items as you get to know the artisans personally.

Furthermore, experience inspiration and innovation come through together as we present 70+ well curated brands, following the #StiloArteFino guiding principle: aesthetic, craft, story.

Accordingly, ArteFino aims to assist and promote the Filipino artistry by providing the artisans the right venue to showcase their works.

“We are working closely with our vendors to see where we can support them,” says Cedie Vargas, ArteFino organizer. Consequently, she added, “Many of them we have seen evolve. We want to keep growing. Our hope is that we can inject many of our traditions in different areas of craft, art and dining, into the mix. We want to push the movement of being truly proud of what we can do as Filipinos.”

Some of the exhibitors who’ll be joining ArteFino are the following:
