When Kage Gozun, our neighbour at Surfer’s Inn in San Juan, La Union from long ago, started posting about Filiology, we were down right curious. Eventually, Kage, who is apparently one of the partners of Filiology, approached us to carry their products during our first “major” community pop-up at Great Northwest Phils. Travel Stop and Viewing Deck last Independence Day of 2018!
And then, we met Gwen— a visionary and who received our utmost respect for her dedication and commitment to their work.
It was the narrative and more importantly, Filiology’s mission to reclaim culture and tradition by presenting a line sheet of curated products produced by tribes they closely work with. And their work doesn’t stop there. They want to share these “new” finds to the public with the goal to educate, restore and represent true service and legacy.
This is the culture being build by Filiology in this time and age using tradition and culture as a springboard.
