KANVAS is a social Enterprise that creates everyday essentials blended with traditional woven fabric for the modern urbanite. Kanvas Introduced traditional weaves and indigenous materials for everyday essentials for modern urbanite.

Promotion of weaving culture and empowerment of communities for livelihood opportunities are Kanvas priority focus. As a designer, we designed products for the use of students, employees, mothers, teenagers, artists, balikbayans, foreigners, etc. in reality the line of products we have is for everybody.

Kanvas started with laptop sleeves and gadgets sleeves. Through the years, we expanded into tote bags, handbags, wristlet, drawstring bag, sling bag, etc. The Canvas material is being used for all products. We believed that with the use of canvas, the capacity to express one’s creative design on material is limitless.  It gave us the space to work around the different woven fabrics because of its simplicity, uniqueness and adaptability of the fabric. Kanvas products are all accented with local weaves from the regions of ILOILO (Hablon and sinamay), Bukidnon (Hinabol), Cotobato (T’nalak). We have expanded the use of local weaves from Kalinga and other tribal prints.


Kanvas also envisions to educate the poor communities on traditional weaving and on product development and production. They were taught on the designs and production through their involvement in the process. We looked for people in the community who are interested and willing to be part of the whole process. Kanvas is in continuous relationship with the community in creating the different product.

Although Kanvas has been in operation for 4 years, it has successfully achieved an awareness and acceptance of its products thru DTI (national trade fairs, arts and crafts in SM Megamall) and other prominent bazaar activities in Iloilo (Produkto Lokal trade fairs), Ayala Mall, Robinsons Antipolo, International Bazaar c/o DFA, and others. Also attended KMME-Mentor Me and OTOP programs with DTI.  KANVAS products are of good quality (durable), affordable and multi-functional.  We have also supplied to doctor’s convention giveaways and company Christmas souvenirs to staff.
