The Philippines has a lot of jewelry manufacturers who focus more on exporting since this has a bigger and profitable market. Sadly, we don't really catch a glimpse or have a chance to avail of their crafts per season unless we go out on a limb and visit their manufacturing outlets and shops in the provinces.
I'll be featuring a series of Costume and Organic Jewelry manufacturers in the Philippines. Though most hail from Cebu, they also have offices in Manila or they actively join trade fairs by CITEM and other industry groups.
One such company from Cebu is Indian Summer.
The group has made a mark globally with the contemporary and colorful vibe in their pieces. They have consistently exhibited in Paris, Hong Kong and Manila.
Kudos to their in-house design team for the bravado in experimenting with colors, giving their pieces a funky edge- its hard not to take notice, and ogle!
For further info, here's their company profile from their website:
Indian Summer, founded in 2000, produces contemporary fashion accessories out of natural materials. We have further diversified our market by manufacturing special components for shoe and bag factories, buttons and special textile accessories.
Exhibiting in Paris, Hongkong and Manila several times a year contributed to our wide range of buyers mainly wholesalers and department stores from Europe, Australia and the United States. The interesting fusion of local materials and unique color play is Indian Summer´s trademark. With over 200 people, we belong to the most advanced and leading companies in the industry.
