DEMETRIA

Margarita Cojuangco was born in the Philippines and studied accessories design in Italy. Demetria is her line of timeless, impeccably constructed handbags, which she has made in small Florence ateliers. In collaboration with Filip+Inna, a company that commissions weaving, embroidery and beadwork from various indigenous groups in the Philippines, and the independent, Manila-based concept store Idée, Demetria has created a limited collection of 50 one-of-a-kind handbags. Adorned with exceptional work from the T’boli, Mangyan and Tausug people, who hail from the southernmost edge of the Philippines, each piece is a complete expression of two different creative paths, European luxury and exceptional traditional skill.
