To the unfamiliar, ArteFino celebrates the Modern Filipino and the Artist-Entrepreneur. This unique platform sees Philippine artisanal crafts in a progressive light, marrying modernity and tradition through different applications for Filipino indigenous materials.
A beautiful display of crates and woven products greets you at the door
Upon arriving at the Penthouse in 8 Rockwell, a beautiful display of crates and woven products welcome you at the front. A dizzying array of beautiful artisanal crafts sprawls over the entire floor, showcasing everything from fashion to home and yes, even to food.
Rows and rows of artisanal shops showcase local talent
ArteFino boasts of some of the country’s established artist-entrepreneurs and enterprises including Rhett Eala, Rags2Riches, Filip+Inna, Rosanna Ocampo and Zarah Juan. What’s most interesting about the fair, however, is discovering the up and coming designers who hold their craft to an equally high premium.

Marsse might look like a traditional wooden craft store at first glance, but don’t let first impressions deceive you - a closer look shows a passion to bring wooden products to the next level of artisan. Marsse creates beautiful products using the Lichtenberg wood burning technique, which is a special process using electricity producing one-of-a-kind fractal patterns.
