Likha aims to not only showcase traditional and contemporary Filipino crafts but to also connect these artisans with talented Filipino designers. Apart from textiles, the artisanal fair features embroidery, basketry, pottery, mat weaving, wood and stone carving, filigree and shell craft, among others.
