Linea Etnika makes simple dressing extraordinary by weaving together indigenous culture with chic fashion. Their pieces combine relaxed, clean lines and contemporary classic cuts with embellishments using indigenous weaves. With Linea Etnika, you not only invest in fashion but make a statement by loving local and making weaves mainstream.
When this social enterprise was established in April 2016, its founders wanted a modern Filipiniana line with a design aesthetic that features how simple dressing can be extraordinary by elevating the wardrobe with local indigenous handloom weaves. They promote their advocacy best by working with different communities. The more hands that touch their products, the more lives they touch and the more positive and powerful stories are created. This is why they do what they do.
