La Pomme for kids Pop-up @ K I S H (June 21 to22)

Im my last trip home during the LABORacay week, I was fortunate enough to drop by the one day pop-up shop of La Pomme for kids in the art compound of Quezon City, 10A Alabama. My friend knew Apol Lejano-Massebieau, the founder of La Pomme, and wanted to support her. I’m all for anything creative, so despite just arriving from Boracay early afternoon, we quickly headed to QC to visit.

I got to speak with Apol for a while and was very amused by how she put up La Pomme and her interesting family story. You can read more about it in their website and blog, www.lapommehome.com.

What caught my attention most was the fact that her family is living in Bohol now, and she works with Filipino artisans to come up with these crafts that are sold by La Pomme.

She’s basically putting a modern and more useful twist to the traditional works of our artisans, thus making them more relevant and providing livelihood to them.
