About us:

ANTHILL stands for Alternative Nest and Trading/Training Hub for Ingenious/Indigenous Little Livelihood Seekers. ANTHILL is a fabrics, arts and crafts social enterprise in Cebu which works with local producers to preserve Filipino traditional fabric production techniques and produce high-quality goods for sale. Each production community runs as a franchise, making distinct products, with the intention that it will eventually be independently managed. Products are sold through the Anthill Gallery in Cebu City and online, with consumers including donor agencies who use the dolls produced in a rural indigenous community for sexual violence work. ANTHILL was founded by a mother and daughter team, the mother is a successful commercial fashion and fabric retailer.
