Pawikan Plush Toy
Handmade plush toys made out of upcycled denim jeans. This pawikan plush toy is handmade by the women's of Apo Island.
Each plush toy showcases the creativity of women and the interpretation of beautiful coral reef on the island where you will have the chance to swim with turtles.
No design is repeated twice. We work with available jeans collected from thrift store and donations.
Tagpi-Tagpi (a Filipino word for patching things together) is a circular economy initiative with a mission to economically empower socially marginalized women who face barriers to work in rural coastal areas in the Philippines. Our upcycling initiative work through crafts, entrepreneurship and local leadership.
