Lil’Soak Designs: Artisans from Davao, Philippines

Lil’Soak Designs is a fair trade label working in Davao, Philippines with a local NGO providing local or in-house livelihood sewing projects to women in Davao, Philippines.  The area is primarily a squatter’s village with employment perpetually below 50%, this livelihood project gives hope to local artisans in the fight against poverty, drug abuse, and sectarian violence.  A percentage of every purchase goes back to the House of Jubillee, and supports health initiatives, feeding programs for school age children., and educational scholarships for local youth.

 Lil’ Soak Designs is passionate about change for good. We are partnering up with small groups of marginalized people to produce and create our designs. We love the art of craftsmanship and want to showcase that in our products. We believe that everyone is entitled to fair wages, regardless of their country or neighbourhood.  When we see injustice being done, we must do something.  We believe that no cause is too small if it is the one placed in front of you.  “Do unto others as you would have done to you”
It’s exciting but things are finally looking up as we are selling more nursing covers and developing new products.  It’s been a slow bumpy ride but we feel passionate about empowering the women in the sewing project.
