Keepsakes Iligan Souvenirs & Crafts is a social enterprise that creates handmade souvenir items of Iligan with ethnic-inspired designs. We express our support to local livelihood associations, home-based crafters and skilled workers by partnering with them for our raw materials and other products. Most of our partners are survivors of Tropical Storm Washi that badly hit Iligan in December 2011.
Many of our products’ accents are inspired by the Higaonon and Maranao designs. This is to help promote the culturally-diverse city of Iligan where Christians, Higaonons and Maranaos live in harmony.
Abaca is the One-Town-One-Product of Iligan City. We strive to make abaca, in its different forms (woven, rope, raw, etc), as one of our base materials for our products. The second base material we use is bamboo, engineered and raw.
At Keepsakes Iligan, we go the extra mile by providing customers with what they need, the best we could.
