High fashion

Most Manileños know pandan only as a food flavoring and these young students of the Ateneo School of Management Business Accelerator (SOMBA) Program are on a mission to re-educate us. P. Nouvelle, with the help of Filipino fashion designer Arnold Galang and two partners from the Department of Trade and Industry, produces gorgeous bags made out of pandan leaves. Sustainable, ethical, green fashion—any takers, ladies?

These "kids" are amazing. Very creative and talented! Reuse, recycle! What could be better.

So sorry you have been so inundated with work. That kind of pressure is not fun. Hopefully, the amount of work will abate somewhat and soon...

Best wishes, always!

Well fancy that I've only used those leaves in cooking. A new take on tasy bag.
