Getting to the HeArt of Filipino Life and Style

The Movement

ArteFino is a movement that celebrates the Filipino artisan by creating an environment that treasures creativity and inspired passion. Part of the vision is to become the leading movement that promotes a proudly Filipino lifestyle, where everyone finds a sense of purpose in valuing and preserving our heritage.

Founded in 2017 by Cedie Vargas, Marimel Francisco, Maritess Pineda, Mita Rufino, and Susie Quiros – ArteFino has evolved from its roots as an artisan fair into a movement which seeks to uplift our cultural heritage and put Filipino style on the map. This dynamic group of individuals believed in the potential of local crafts to become world-class and drew from their shared experiences of organizing various artisanal craft fairs in the country to create a new community that focuses on creating awareness for Filipino artisans and their craft.
