These bags are made from recycled plastic by the children living in Hagonoy, Bulacan, where they hand weave and paint the designs themselves. They are available at Beach Street in Club Paradise for Php 2,800. This is the resort’s way of supporting local artistry and communities.
In recognition of Nene Zapico, a young student who started this project together with a group of kids, we named it the NENE bag. Make sure to check these out when you visit Club Paradise Palawan, and hopefully support the cause.
Trivia: Nene is also a common term of endearment used for little girls in the Philippines.
