The three trends are as follows:

NATURALIST

The naturalist trend feature products inspired by nature. The products developed for this trend mainly use neutral and earth colors. Raw and indigenous materials such as pandan, raffia, seagrass etc. were used in creating some of the products featured in this setting.

Prompted by the regard for our environment the products featured in this setting utilize the various natural gifts of the Philippines.

This particular trend is inspired by the allure of the sea and intricate ikat patterns. Mood Indigo is a mixture of different hues/shades of blue. The products featured in this setting are made of recycled and indigenous materials like raffia, bamboo, abalone, abaca, capiz and driftwood.
