“NEST is the ideal shopping destination or distinct gift items. It is a special collaboration of innovative artist-entrepreneurs where fashion meets home ware,” the company said in a statement.

In curating products for the shop, Rodriguez said he is on the lookout for “anything Filipino but very contemporary.”

Among the items sold in the shop are beautifully crafted furniture made of denim and driftwood and done by a group of women in northern Cebu.

“We want more artisan crafts,” Rodriguez said, “to preserve our heritage.”

Also available in the store are accessories made of sea glass. “These are broken glass that you see it in the shoreline and they polish it and with the help of the Dutch government they train the women to turn it into jewelry accessories,” he said.
