Founded in my junior year of high school, The Loom Project is a nonprofit slow fashion label that helps provide livelihood and looms in indigenous Filipino weaving communities. Working with local tailors and shoemakers to realize my ideas, I purchase handwoven textiles directly from the weavers and combine them with deadstock textiles or locally-woven espadrille soles. I design every piece and shoot my products with the help of family and friends. The project is currently on hold until I'm back in the Philippines.

Each piece takes inspiration from filipiniana, or traditional Filipino dress, and its global cultural influences. Ultimately, The Loom Project is an experiment in decolonizing design and incorporating heritage into everyday dress, and an effort to reimagine a more equitable, sustainable and mindful fashion system.

The Loom Project has been featured in the Philippine Daily Inquirer, The Philippine Star and the IB World Magazine. Current and previous partners include Bench x Katutubo, Frankie’s General Store, GREAT Women and Girl Up Philippines.
