The 5 Filipino Designers of R2R
A big part of what we do in R2R is transformation. It’s in our name itself, Rags2Riches. From starting with rugs or floor mats used in many Filipino homes to making meaningful bags and home accents, we’ve come a long way. Much of this should be credited to the people who provided a vision that propelled our artisans’ talent for weaving into a brand beloved by you, our dear advocates!
In the past eight years, we’ve partnered and worked with talented Filipino designers like Rajo Laurel, Amina Aranaz, and Oliver Tolentino who, in their own unique way, contributed to our identity today. Without their talent, creativity, and big hearts, you wouldn’t be toting some of your favorite R2R designs and this is why we’d love for you to meet them – both our partners from the past to our own in-house designer.
