The Holistic Coalition of the Willing (HoliCOW) is an initiative by our kababayans in the Visayas region that fosters sustainability, community, but most especially, the Filipino identity.

They are a group of furniture designers and manufacturers in the Visayas who collaborate with communities to develop, produce, and market sustainable, fair trade products that responsibly tap a community’s skills and resources, and that supplement their livelihood.

The coalition’s core value is to craft from resources found within proximity: from objects to traditions passed down from one generation to another. By rallying the morale of our local designers and innovating the design industry’s processes, HoliCOW is a key player in keeping the country’s design scene thriving.
