The Brand Bio

Paloma Urquijo Zobel
Established:

Headquarters:
Manila, Philippines
County of Manufacture:
Philippines

PIOPIO is a line of bohemian, free spirited and contemporary clothing and accessories. The brand blends modern design with time-honoured artisan techniques. Their items feature the work of traditional Filipino weavers and artisans from around the Philippines, updated as every day wear. Some are original designs, and some are sourced from great artists and designers around the country.

PIOPIO's mission is to weave funky Filipino traditions and artistry into everything they do. The brand sources all of their expertly woven fabrics directly from local hand weavers from across the country to bring you an array of one-of-a-kind patterns meticulously crafted into every garment. PIOPIO creates small collections or individual pieces. Each piece is meant to be an individual unique Filipino addition to complement your own personal style.

Upcycled denim, vibrant embroidery, and funky patterns are testament to how PIOPIO takes its Philippine heritage seriously, but doesn't take itself too seriously.
