LIGAW WOOD SLING
"Ligaw" in Tagalog means "to woo". And woo this cross-body bag will. Hand-crafted in the Philippines, this petite wood-bead purse is guaranteed to make heads turn. Smaller in size, it can hold everything you need for your all-day hustle. But wait — there's more! Tuck the strap inside, and it becomes a clutch. The best things really do come in small packages.
Your purchase contributes to a sustainable livelihood for weavers in Southern Luzon, Philippines. A portion of proceeds also goes to Right Start Foundation, a non-profit, non-government organization for underprivileged Filipino children.

ABOUT THE MAKER
Abaca tells age-old stories with a modern aesthetic. Based in Manila, Estela de Jesus and her two daughters, Beatriz and Ina, design quality handmade items and curate thoughtfully found objects. With a belief that every place has a story to tell and every culture has something to offer, Abaca aims to support culturally rich communities and preserve traditional craft. A portion of all their proceeds goes to Right Start Foundation, a non-profit for underprivileged Filipino children. The traditional methods they seek follow a long process—natural materials are hand-picked, washed, sun-dried, naturally dyed, and woven by hand. Due to the labor and scarcity of workers, each piece has limited availability.
Our products are made by human hands and with natural materials. We believe the slight variations in our pieces are what make them unique and extraordinary.
