In its latest release, the Luntian Bag livelihood project features bag designs of tribal headhunters, fertility symbols, traditional tattoos by AG Saño, the artist responsible for some of the most ubiquitous street murals in the Philippines.
The latest Luntian Bag is more than just about being earth-friendly and stylish, as the new styles carry a deeper advocacy—which is to promote the artistry of Filipinos and to help the kids of Tinglayan, Benguet.
These Wang-od Bags that were conceptualized and produced will be delivered to the beneficiaries on August 23 to 25, by the outreach group TREK or Trails to Empower Kids, an organization founded in 2007 to help kids who live and study in the mountains. For every purchase, a bag goes to a student of Buscalan province.
TREK Tinglayan will have over thirty volunteers from Metro Manila, mostly mountaineers, who will also deliver water supply system, books and school supplies to three schools in Tinglayan, Benguet.
Luntian Bag is a livelihood project based in a seaside barangay in San Teodoro, Mabini, Batangas. It was also founded in 2007 by Ichay Bulaong, a corporate executive who wanted to give back to her local weekend-home community, and promote the anti-plastic advocacy by using canvas bags for shopping trips instead of plastic ones. Her daughter, Marina, is one of TREK’s volunteers.
