Twinkle Ferraren is an independent fashion, accessory, and textile designer. Her personal search for identity and heritage has led to an on-going yearning and exploration to learn more about her country, the islands, the people and the textiles. She established her own bespoke island wear label ‘Twinkle*Ferraren’ and promotes the use of natural materials and indigenous textiles in the Philippines through her passion project ‘Style Isle’.

With over 15 years of experience in the industry, Twinkle works closely with artisan communities to research and create sustainable, ethical business practices for her design labels. 

About the project

Twinkle facilitated a series of face-to-face workshops that aimed to strengthen the business continuity of artisan groups in Marawi City, Lanao del Sur and Lake Sebu, South Cotabato in the time of Covid-19. 

To address issues on originality and authenticity of creative works and capacity-building, Twinkle’s Craft Toolkit presentation focused on setting business goals, creating design concepts, developing products, strengthening sales and marketing and managing budget.

Partner communities

The identified beneficiaries of the Craft Toolkit learning offer are the following groups:
  • Maranao Collectibles (Marawi City, Lanao del Sur)
  • T’boli’s Kenhulung Handicraft Federation (Lake Sebu, South Cotabato)
