Samo't Sari Handicraft
A brand that focuses on coco shell products. Coco shells are agriwaste that are normally turned into charcoal. From the town of San Pablo Laguna a couple, Nenen and Efren Calingasan started making souvenirs in 2013 in their backyard. Efren is a visual artist while his wife is an mompreneur. Together, they transform this agri-waste material into fun and functional pieces. Through the help of DTI-Laguna they were able to upscale their products and explore market opportunities.
