This year, they are celebrating culture, craft, and conscious living through the ArteFino Festival 2022. Keep reading to know more.
Since their launch in 2017, ArteFino has already worked with several local brands that led to countless opportunities for them to grow and evolve. The ArteFino team organized this year’s event in a festival-like setting in order to perfectly capture the essence of having a genuine community between like-minded individuals–especially after the past years of navigating through the new normal. This five-week celebration contains a well-curated range of over 150 designers, brands, and labels where you can shop, explore, and connect with. From fashion, accessories, home essentials, and even children’s wear, the ArteFino founders have personally handpicked this year’s roster of brands that embody the essence of sustainable living.
Aside from the brands and designers present at the five-week event, this year’s festival also aims to create an authentic experience built on having an inclusive community. The ArteFino Festival contains several highlights including interactive programs, food pop-ups, and more. Here, you will find activities like The Maker’s Challenge where everyone can create upcycled pieces from everyday materials. ArteFino’s collaboration with The Seven Pantry–Eats by ArteFino–will also be present to serve elevated local flavors that will excite everyone’s palates. Pair that with Tarsier Records’ specifically curated playlist for the best festival experience. This year’s ArteFino festival encourages everyone to celebrate expert Filipino craftsmanship and sustainable living–truly an experience you should not miss.
