FAIR TRADE | HANDMADE
The basket is made of seagrass by weavers from a cottage industry in Bicol, Philippines. Whether you place it on the countertop or table, it's sure to set the mood for your kitchen.
WOVEN BASKET MATERIAL
Abaca, musa textillis, a close relative of the banana plant. Harvesting abaca is labor-intensive. Each stalk must be cut into strips, which are then usually scraped by hands to remove the pulp. The long white fibers are then washed and sun dried. Abaca fiber is strong, durable, biodegradable and eco-friendly.
WOVEN HANDCRAFTED PLACEMATS
Bring a sense of serenity onto your table tops with these forrest green placemats. Each piece is woven on a handloom and customarily made of Inabel fabric; which is uniquely prepared by turning cotton fiber into spools of beeswax-brushed yarn. Finished with raised ribbed-like patterns called 'wasig', these beautifully handcrafted placemats carry vibrant traditions into your home.
Made by former orphans, elderly artisans and students in a small family-run center located in Llocos, Philippines. These handwoven products provide the weavers with a sustainable income while keeping the craft alive.

JENNIFER SHUM ABELEV
JENNIFER SHUM ABELEV is the Los Angeles-based social entrepreneur behind NEEPA HUT. Her desire to make a positive impact was sparked by spending time with artisan communities in Southeast Asia. Seeing the women practice their respective crafts, she was struck by their ingenuity and perseverance, despite their humble surroundings.
Motherhood, for her, took on a new significance after spending time with these women. Consequently, she traded her career in finance for a new challenge, focused on preserving the heritage of Southeast Asia artisans through NEEPA HUT.
The crafts of our artisans shape the social fabric of their villages, and help them provide for their children and families. It is their sense of community and togetherness that Jennifer hopes to extend through NEEPA HUT’s products.
