Expression—the forefront of femininity. The facet that makes every woman unique, and Charming Baldemor’s wearable art complete the picture. But more than that, they provide women with avenues to express themselves through what they carry, packaged in a compact and classy piece of art. From the material choices to the design, Charming Baldemor’s wearable art represents the woman in every way possible: delicate yet strong, versatile yet tough and secure.
These pieces reflect every woman, but share the same philosophy—that functionality doesn’t have to be boring, and that details are always divine. Bags for the strong and confident woman who isn’t afraid to flaunt her style, whatever it may be.
Behind the Wearable Art
Behind each piece is the inner strength of the artist, and the story of the material used to create it. CB instills this value into each piece that exits the Studio. A woman driven by passion uses her expertise in an endless stream of inventiveness and creativity that breathes life and character into each bag.
Every bag carries its own story and soul, created to delight passionate bag-making devotees or even those with a penchant for unique objects. Each piece is tailored to suit a different personality, whether it be from quirky to classic, edgy to conservative, or a mix of everything. CB is grounded on the conviction that a creation is only meaningful if it becomes part of one’s day-to-day existence. Art is more than visual — art is an experience created for those who see it.
WHO WE ARE
A Charming Baldemor art piece inspires contemplation and discovery. It invites observers to pause and admire the creation not just for its aesthetics, but also for its careful and deliberate craftsmanship. No detail is left to chance, and it is in these subtle nuances that observers may appreciate the true caliber of the handiwork behind it.
A Charming Baldemor art piece is unique because of its intimate nature. It becomes inseparable from the woman who carries it, becoming an extension of her own interests and taste.
“Each piece of minauderie carries a story,
etched in the
grains of the wood used to create it."
Character comes from the way the artist chooses to carve around the existing condition of the wood in order to bring out the natural detail of the grain or how the artist uses these details to enhance the design that was meant for it.
Beyond the Bag
One only needs to be good in order to give. The wearable art crafted by Charming Baldemor is only one of the ways to support these various advocacies. She fully believes that there are still a multitude of ways to champion Filipino artistry, the revival of forests, and women empowerment.
Charming Baldemor’s studio is open to anyone who wishes to contribute to the cause by donating wooden material. Instead of discarding these materials, interested parties can contact the studio to discuss details about the timber and how it can be shared with the artist, along with the rich stories behind them.
Numerous organizations have already made their presence known on various social media platforms. Backed with facts and other credible information, following legitimate organizations such as the Haribon Foundation and the Philippine Commission on Women will allow you and your circle to be more aware of the advocacy that you wish to support.
Organizations are always more than willing to have more hands to help their particular causes. Giving one’s time and effort for the benefit of organizations and their beneficiaries such as the Philippine Native Plants Conservation Society and Girls Who Code is a worthy and admirable way of championing one’s advocacy.
