"Bluso Bnetek" unveils a tribute to the art of Tboli design. Embodying the rich heritage of the Tboli people, each Bluso intricately showcases the traditional design of  zig-zag ('sigul') forms, harmoniously intertwined with geometric shapes seen in their everyday attire, t'nalak textile, and artistic expressions.

Crafted using the age-old techniques of Temwel (brass-casting) and Kemteng (brass-pulling), the Bluso Bnetek is a testament to the seamless fusion of nature and mundane objects. The artisans breathe new life into upcycled brass and metal scraps sourced from local junk shops, transforming them into wearable masterpieces that pay homage to Tboli tradition, folklore, and the beauty of the natural world.

Each of our bracelets are handmade in small batches to showcase the highest quality Tboli craftsmanship available. Naturally, this means your jewelry will have small imperfections and a unique character to it.

Sesotunawa

Sesotunawa is a Tboli Indigenous-owned social enterprise that celebrates the stories of Lake Sebu through Temwel (Tboli brass casting) and Temool Lemimet (Tboli beading). Sesotunawa’s co-founder and master brass caster is Kuya Joel, who learned the art of Temwel by helping his grandmother roll wax and cast brass in her workshop. Sesotunawa is named after the Tboli virtue that translates into “the spirit of working together”.
