This September 2015, a lot of flavors are coming to tempt your palate at the Manila Hotel Food Festival!  

We are happy to note that two of our Papemelroti designers will be joining the festival as art exhibitors.  Patsy Paterno and Peggy Lasa’s creations both have a Filipiniana theme that complements the theme perfectly.  

They’ve let us have a first look at some of their art.

Make a community of colorful characters!

Papemelroti designer Robert Alejandro has turned a piece of plastic into works of upcycled art!

They each have their own personality and though they look as fun and as entertaining as a circus crowd, they come from all walks of life!

We don’t actually know what to call them so keep posted to find out!

They are not yet out in the market but we would already appreciate if you let us know what you think!
