HIMÔ: A Space and Making Fair
The Holistic Coalition of the Willing—with its primary thrust to develop, create and curate sustainable communities in the creative industries—has partnered with 32 Sanson by Rockwell to once again host “HIMÔ: A Space and Making Fair.”
This three-day selling event will showcase new product ranges from HoliCOW’s collaborations, and year-long culmination of design interventions with grassroots communities all over Cebu and Central Visayas.
With the support of organizations such as the European Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines and the Department of Trade and Industry, HoliCOW has helped empower and encourage crafting communities in the region.
Now on its second year, they turn their focus on their common home, and an element central to Visayan life: the sea. Surrounded by it, and bringing to the island nation the trade it has survived and thrived in since the beginning of time, they revert their attention and concern for its revitalization and its preservation.
Fundamental to this enormous task is relevance and awareness, which they bring hand-in-hand in HIMÔ.
They brought to the table new partners and collaborators who have the same thrust, spotlighting elements of sustainability and the sea: tastefully upcycled materials in marine shapes, fitting into the easy, authentic lifestyle that is HoliCOW’s signature.
They likewise gave a platform for their friends in advocacy namely the Coral Quest Rehabilitation Philippines; representatives from Danjugan Island’s eco-tourism initiative; and Cebu International School with its immersive programs.
Also highlighted is the All That Glitters trunk show, an annual HoliCOW event that they have brought to the expansive open space of 32 Sanson’s warm and inviting grounds, to round up their event.
All That Glitters features exclusive and one-of-a-kind designs, touting their biggest collection of fine jewelry yet.
HIMÔ: A Space and Making Fair will run from Nov. 10 to 12, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at 32 Sanson Road, Lahug. For more information about HIMÔ, call (032) 417 3888
