FASTIDIOUS. REGAL. DIGNIFIED.
Reclaiming the colonial tradition.
Crafted from sturdy Narra stair steps, the Calado collection draws the eye to the intricacy of its designs. Inspired by the Barong Tagalog, the national dress for men, the collection carries the same level of detail employed by the iniaturismo of 19th century artists such as Antonio Malantic and Justiniano Asuncion. The design on each bag is carefully carved to mimic embroidery, and the style is reminiscent of structured shapes not only found in clothing, but also in the interior design of homes from the 18th and 19th century Philippines.
