Behind The Brand: Vesti See how this bag designer turns indigenous textile into wearable art.

Born and bred Mindanaoan Martha Rodriguez never thought term papers and a thesis would lead her to her destiny. With both school requirements being on Mindanaoan and abaca silk, you could say they pointed her in the right direction.  After she designed a circular sling bag made from abaca, inquiries kept pouring in and prodded her to design more bags that made use of her beloved fabrics.

Vesti, her brand, prides itself in its fair dealings and collaborations with artisan weavers and small-scale industries. Not only are its products beautiful but they are priced fairly too. So if you want a piece of wearable indigenous art, consider a Vesti bag for your next purchase.
