A-Fash x F.A.R.M.

Just recently, the online shop of a social enterprise was launched in our school,
Ateneo de Naga University. A group of young entrepreneurs, together with the
existing project of Ms. Bernadette de los Santos, conceptualized
the making of F.A.R.M. at Ateneo.
F.A.R.M. stands for “Fabulously & Absolutely Rural Made”,
which describes the totality of the project. The shop uses discarded buttons
and fabrics to create unique and innovative products such as tote bags,
purse, wallets, key chains, cellphone charms, and bracelets.  
The project started with its owner Ms. Bernadette de los Santos, also known as
Ms. Bidibidi to many. Ms. Bidibidi is a well known Bikolano artist
and a social advocate. It was conceptualized in the later part of 2008 after
she was awarded as the Outstanding Rural Woman of the Department of Agriculture.
Because of this, she was called to serve more especially the rural
women of Baao, Camarines Sur - her hometown.
One of F.A.R.M.’s advocacy is green fashion. They help the environment
by using recycled materials in making their fashion accessories.
Other than that, the project also offers livelihood to rural women and
scholarship to the youth of Baao. The project has helped many students
and people of Baao and this story has reached the Ateneo de Naga community.
F.A.R.M. at Ateneo was created to make F.A.R.M. products
available online so that it can reach a bigger market.
A-Fash  collaborated with the brand because we believe in its advocacy.
Its products are not only fashionably trendy but are also crafted with
utmost passion and compassion. Each of the items is made from the heart ❤
This feminine tote bag is from F.A,R.M.’s newest line - F.A,R.M. Threads.
They are made of purely recycled fabric and are zipped, lined,
and supported in genuine brown leather strap. Perfect for all the school girls out there!
The bracelet I’m wearing on my left is also one of F.A,R.M.’s products.
It’s made of vintage buttons, cool right? (•‿•) So what are you waiting for?
