In Waray, the word yakan means to tell, to speak. In the cultural landscape of the country, Yakan is a name attached to an indigenous tribe in the Sulu archipelago. Living mainly in Basilan and Zamboanga, the Yakan people are famous for their intricate geometrical weaves and equally colorful traditional ceremonies. In this collection, we showcase the best of Visayas and Mindanao with a series of travel essentials that hit the right balance between utility and aesthetics.
All items are handcrafted by artisans in Basey, Basilan, Zamboanga, and Marikina.
