Malingkat is a Tausug word that means beautiful; a fitting name for a cause-driven brand that highlights the beauty of Mindanao, of the Philippines one weave at a time. It is an ode to the founder's paternal Tausug heritage, a remembrance of idyllic years growing up in the southern city of Iligan, and a tribute to the stories of the tribes and communities behind the loom.

Established in 2017, Malingkat is a social and cultural enterprise driven by our commitment to showcase and promote Philippine weaving practices, indigenous textiles and handmade craft traditions with special focus on Muslim Mindanao. We advocate and support sustainable livelihood opportunities through our partnerships with weavers and artisans from Sulu, Basilan Island, Zamboanga City, Marawi City, Lanao del Sur, and Lake Sebu, South Cotabato in Mindanao; and Marikina City, Abra, Aurora, Quezon, Laguna and Rizal provinces in Luzon. 

We are intentional about the products we create and curate, striking a balance between style and function as we weave tradition into modern aesthetic through our collection of thoughtfully designed home, lifestyle, and fashion pieces featuring the handwoven fabrics of our partners. Our products range from home goods including cushion covers, table linens, wooden trays to fashion and lifestyle pieces like small leather goods and footwear, reusable bags and zero waste accessories. Aside from retail and corporate clients, we also supply raw textiles to designers and other brands and offer custom weaving projects for homes, hotels/resorts, independent boutiques and e-retailers for both domestic and international markets.

We honor the hands and respect the traditions behind each handmade creation as we bring a part of our exquisite weaving heritage from their loom to your home, one malingkat piece at a time.
