Sesotunawa is inspired by a special kind of virtue lived out by the Tboli of Lake Sebu. When broken down into its roots, Sesotunawa is a union of two Tboli words, “sesotu” or “to make one”, and “nawa” or “spirit”. It literally stands for the spirit of working together.
Sesotunawa extends beyond the community of the Tboli. This sense of community is also alive among those who work alongside the Tboli people. Those who share the same vision of a sustainable cultural and social enterprise. Together, we aim to celebrate and bring different Tboli products to the world.
Our commitment as a socio-cultural enterprise is to protect the tradition and livelihood of the Tboli artisans who made your accessories and homeware. We also believe that customers like you, our #CultureMovers, have the right to know how much your purchase truly cost and what we do with your support.
