We’re not out of the woods
Due to COVID-19, over 600 artisans in the Philippines have been under strict lockdown since mid-March. Although many are able to work from home, restrictions prevent the operation of private vehicles, putting the distant wood suppliers out of reach. With no way to receive or transport goods, many artisans are unable to create and ship new pieces and are left without their only means of income.
We are doing all we can to support artisans by continuing to place orders, but until restrictions are lifted, the future of the artisan group’s operations is uncertain. If you’ve had your eye on a wooden serveware piece, move fast to purchase now — when artisans need it the most.
