These bags are made from repurposed plastic by the children of Hagonoy, Bulacan. They are delicately hand-woven and the designs are artistically painted by them. In support of local artistry and in honor of Nene Zapico, a young student who started this project together with a group of kids from the same neighborhood, we named it the NENE bag. Check these out when you visit Discovery Shores Boracay and be an advocate of sustainability.
Trivia: Nene is also a common term of endearment used for little girls in the Philippines.
