We at Blood Red look out for people doing good things, and one of those is Renee Patron of “I Love Banago”. She and her team of weavers make wonderful designs that are crafted into tote bags, beach bags and clutches.
We love the way Renee has made wonderful patterns and quality of weave with her skilled workers. Blood Red design team took inspiration from their classic PINTADOS pattern, inspired by the “painted ones”, ancient Philippine warriors who instead of receiving medals for their valour were tattooed with honour.
Blood Red liked their classic black and white and overlaid our own colours and pattern into the design. This collaboration results in a unique range of dry bags that are perfect for those who wish to look good while exploring.
In addition we created a matching short and rash guard set. And as a bonus there is a limited edition note book to jot down those moments of inspiration.
This collaboration supports the Banago weavers who are also Typhoon Haiyan survivors. The Pintados weave represents their resiliency and enduring spirit.
The Blood Red dry bags, all designed in Cebu, have unique features: an excellent quality/price ratio; the use of materials, finishes, and accessories typical of luxury products; the stylistic and modelling know how, and the compliance with ethical principles of sustainability.
