The CustomMade Crafts Center, Inc. (CMCC) is an initiative of NTFP-EP Philippines (Non-Timber Forest Products Exchange Programme Philippines), a collaborative network of non-government organizations and community-based organizations that empower forest dependent communities to utilize and manage their forest resources in a sustainable manner.

CMCC works with master weavers and indigenous artisans all over the Philippines to create beautiful and functional products that express the timeless traditions of these cultural communities while meeting the needs of the modern market. Through innovative product design, CMCC is expanding the market for these works of art to ensure that these communities will continue their traditions, way of life and keep on nurturing the forests that sustain them.



CMCC engages in environmentally sustainable consumption and production practices, ensuring that raw materials are gathered in an environment-friendly manner. CMCC adheres to fair trade practices. The pricing of products is guided by the principle of protecting both the rights of the artisans and the consumers while maintaining economic viability. Income generated from sales is given back to the communities through continuous product development, technology transfer, capacity building,

marketing and other related services.
