Manikako, Future ko


Hats off to those who pulled this event together. We visited them last Wednesday and bought dolls to give away 😀 This was a fund-raiser organized by ArtHOC or House of Comfort Art Network, an NGO that hosts free art workshops to children. It’s a whimsical and very creative take on social marketing, I hope that (and by the looks of it), this event was a success. From February 16 to 23, 100 artists contributed their craft and made remarkable pieces out of the plainest rug dolls. Manikako sold starter kits for Php 150, pin-head dolls at Php85 and custom dolls. They were also auctioning the artists’ painted/made-up dolls. Starting at Php500, the bid had gone up to Php7,500 by February 20.

Albeit simple, this piece by National Artist Malang was the highest-bid item
The designs go from ethnic, to new age, fantasy to still life!
