Belgian designer Sep Verboom partnered with social environmentalist Hon. Nida Cabrera to innovate the waste management in Cebu City. Old fans are purchased in Philippine junkshops and combined with traditional weavings by local craftsmen. The rattan materials provide a natural touch and connect the products to a rich culture of weaving industries. Currently, Fantasized is launching at the Milan Furniture Fair with a pre-order campaign on INDIEGOGO. Become a FAN!
