Vela Manila

Filipino Goods That Blend Tradition X Modernity
Founded by Maura Alvero, Vela Manila artfully blends tradition with modernity. They work directly with artisan weavers and likeminded organizations all over the Philippines to showcase and celebrate native materials within a modern context.

Every piece is carefully assembled by craftsmen in Marikina, a city in Metro Manila known for its quality craftsmanship. The result are thoughtful pieces that retell the story of the Philippines’ vibrant heritage, while providing dignified livelihood to Filipino artisans.
