Fair Trade, Fashion, and Philippines, a special talk by the founder of AKABA Limited Design Co

July 25 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Come and hear a special talk by the founder of AKABA Limited Design Co. AKABA is a sustainable fashion brand from the Philippines that works with weaving communities to preserve Filipino weaving traditions and promote Filipino craftsmanship.
EJ will be talking about the challenges and opportunities of working with artisans across the Philippines, how his team grew from 8 weavers to 100 within one year, and how they’re taking on brand giants while staying true to their social mission. There will also be a Cambio Market pop-up shop onsite for people to discover other ethical brands, and Filipino food vendors so you can shop and eat while mingling with Toronto’s ethical fashion, social enterprise, and creative arts communities.
