The Bagsakan Special Project has been helping Filipino micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in making their products more accessible in different parts of Metro Manila. The Bagsakan is an upshot of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Featured products include skincare items from Diana Stalder by Dermaline, beauty soaps for different skin types by Diwatang Maria Corporation, woven items like facemasks, scarves, polo barongs, jackets, blouses made from yakan fabric by Angie’s Yakan Handloom Weaving, Marikina shoes and bags by Princess Illona, and upcycled bags, face masks, house clothes and home items by Merly’s Recycled Craftcha.

Also available are assorted native bags, rectangular and round mats, frames, and ottoman boxes by Ma. Delza’s Native Products of Samar; woven totes and fans by Moonlight Handicrafts; and creative home pieces by Cerra Furniture & Home Decor.

Fresh fruits are also for sale, such as Guimaras mangoes, avocados, and pomelos from Granah Consumer Goods; spices and seasonings, juice concentrates, and other processed products from Blue Macay Food Manufacturing Corporation; and condiments from The Kitchen Witchery Food Ventures, Incorporated are also available.
