Sora Reticule

$175

Secret meetings in the 18th century. Handkerchiefs and crossed hands, soft dresses. The Mother of Balintawak.

 

 

Our version of the 18th century reticule, inspired by Tandang Sora—a multi-way drawstring purse meant to be worn around the neck, as a sling, or around the wrist. 2-sided and intricately embroidered in Lumban, Laguna.

 

Lumban, Laguna, is a small town long known for the quality and intricacy of their embroidery. With a mix of hand-sewn and hand-guided elements, also seen here is the Sampaguita Callado, a kind of filigree work wherein the fabric thread is painstakingly pulled from the cloth to create an intricate pattern.

 

A portion of proceeds go to Real Life Foundation, a non-profit, non-government organization providing educational assistance to underprivileged Filipino youth.
