Jacquard Linen Collection
This collection was developed and researched remotely for two years. In the time of restricted travel, we worked on these designs in thoughtful and careful detail. Each piece has been sewn solely by a single Filipina seamstress. It is a tactile, urbane and artisanal collection that evokes the kind of femininity La Filippine champions, effortless yet hitting high marks on the style meter.

Meet the seamstress
Jonah Borces, like most Filipinas, is gifted, resilient and industrious. Her thoughtful work product is on full display in these jacquard linen pieces. Each piece is handmade, no two are exactly similar, each one is remarkably crafted by this unmatched woman.
Jonah and I have worked with each other for 2 decades and counting. She was my mother’s most prolific and earnest costume jewelry designer in Cebu where I had the fortune to create accessories with her.
Today Jonah is the artisan behind my baskets (the famous Barkin) and most recently the seamstress who has sewn my capsule collection all by herself.
