Ancáns collection of handcrafted accessories combines
age-old techniques with a modern design aesthetic.
Firmly rooted in their Filipino heritage.
They manufactured in different regions, depending on material and
method. Right now majority is in the Philippines--Cebu, Capiz, and
Aklan in Visayas, Laguna, Bicol and Manila which are all in Luzon,
and some in Jaipur and Kolkata in India.
A lot of our materials Ancán is using, make use of natural fibers
spun into thread for textile weaving-this always begins with manually picking
out material from the plant, hand-processing like scraping, etc.
washing, sun-drying, knotting by hand and then finally weaving
them on a hand-loom
Dyes are used sometimes, depending on the material.
It's a long process and this is what they find valuable and beautiful.
Ancán donates a part of all proceeds to the
Right Start Foundation who are providing creative caring spaces
for the poorest children in the community.
