Baskets, Baskets Everywhere, Baskets Near and Far: Basket Round Up
I love baskets and I don’t care who knows it. I love bringing the culture into my home because I am a firm believe that when you surround yourself with your local culture you become attached and planted to your home! When you are attache and planted you feel comfortable, welcome and happy. When you’re happy you can spread that stuff everywhere! And that is what baskets have done for me, ha! I am most certainly a basket case.
i spent the last few years coveting my moms woven basket from her time spent in chile as young adult. apparently, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. i was finally able to bring it home this summer to manila.
My Paborito Basket Sukis:
Dapitan Arcade, located in Quezon City is a basket depot. You must be prepared to dig and get a bit dirty and sweaty. There is no one specific vendor, have a look around until you find a particular shop you like most.

Salcedo & Sidcor Market|
Sacledo and Sidcor weekend markets have everything you want from food to fun but also … BASKETS! My favorite is a small vendor who sells these baskets from Abaca. The price isn’t the cheapest, it’s still affordable, but I have yet to find another vendor (besides Magayon Handmade) who has the selection they do.
C&C Home is a younger local brand that I have fallen in love with. They are completely online but if you want to view the pieces in person keep up to date with their bazaar attendance.
Out Of The Metro: Paete|
We ventured to Paete last October and found the mother load of baskets. Paete is not near Manila, a 2-3 hours drive, but you can surely order some lovelies and have them delivered. Pwede!
