Trunk warmers

“rag” "Things don't have to be extraordinary to be beautiful;
even the ordinary can be beautiful."
~Matthew in Wicker Park (2004)

As part of Bonifacio Global City's Art BGC 2014, Rags2Riches "rag-bombed" (from yarn bombing) trees all over the development and placed wind chimes on some of them.

Rags2Riches is a social enterprise composed of (mostly) women in poor communities who weave scrap cloth, organic materials and indigenous fabrics into some very lovely and unique bags, pillows and rugs.

Quite colourful!

I have seen yarnbombing done here. This is quite close to the style I've seen.
