Waling Waling Gold Necklace
Rare, resplendent, and a uniquely Filipino beauty: the Waling-waling Capsule Collection by illustrator and graphic designer Raxenne Maniquiz is a homegrown and handmade celebration of the Queen of Philippine Orchids. The stacking rings at the heart of the collection are examples of pure handiwork, each molded by Basic Movement’s Bulacan-based artisans and hand-painted by Raxenne in her studio using a fine brush. As a result, no two pieces are the same.
Part of the capsule are ultra-limited T-shirts available in only five pieces. Each one is an original design hand-painted by Raxenne, one of which features another endemic wildlife species worth our attention: the endangered Papilio chikae, a butterfly commonly called the Luzon Peacock Swallowtail. The waling-waling motif extends to the rest of the collection, which includes a tropical polo in a unisex cut, and a rich satin scarf.
A portion of the collection’s sales will go to the Philippine Native Plants Conservation Society Inc., a non-profit for the protection of indigenous plants and their habitats.
