  1. Hi Kai,
    I came across your blog through researching about Filipino fashion designers and I found this blog post very useful!
    Im currently in my final year dong Textiles for Fashion and would love to settle in Manila someday. I was actually thinking about visiting Zamboanga to visit the weavers of the Yakan Tribe. What is like in Zamboanga City? :)
