Sesotunawa

Sesotunawa
Sesotunawa is a Tboli indigenous owned social enterprise that celebrates the art and stories of Lake Sebu, Mindanao through handmade brass (also called temwel) and beaded products. Kuya Joel is Sesotunawa’s co-founder and master brass caster where he’s started learning Temwel from watching and 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".
