Filip + Inna is inspired by tradition, intertwined with the contemporary. The tradition is the warp; the contemporary is the weft. They are woven together to create timeless and unique pieces of clothing.
Filip + Inna brings into each garment ancient techniques of weaving, embroidery and beadwork from different indigenous groups of the Philippines. The human hand is seen and felt in each creation as the artisan breathes life into it.
Filip + Inna's mission is to create while also reviving - even preserving ancient traditions of the Philippines that are in danger of becoming lost. We work with many groups of talented artisans across the Archipelago, giving them an opportunity to improve their livelihoods. From our hands to yours, may the beauty, depth and integrity of each garment bring a deep appreciation for what is distinctly Filipino - distinctly Filip + Inna.

Len is the Founder and Creative Designer of Filip + Inna. Her love for the rich cultural heritage of the Philippines began as a child growing up in Iligan City in Mindanao. She fondly remembers visits to her home by the Maranaos in all their finery and her exposure to different Indigenous Peoples was further enhanced through Philippine folk dance. The impression they made on her is the heart of Filip + Inna
