What is life without art?
It’s a question worthy of a thousand page essay and a situation that would make you feel uneasy. No cartoons, movies, music, games and so many other things that make us feel alive and happy.
This passion is what drives The Craft Central to move forward with their plans to inspire budding talents and, at the same time, get more people to join in on the fun. Most people may know them as an online shop that sells hard-to-find arts and crafts materials, but now, The Craft Central has finally opened its own physical store in Greenbelt 5, Makati!

The Craft Central is more than just a store; it’s now a community of crafters and artists whose purpose is to give people the means to live a creative life. As one of the partners, I’m especially excited about the opportunities that The Craft Central has given to me. The store has also become a venue for many other wonderful, yet unknown, artists to show their art and inspire others.

What’s also great about the store is that it gives people the opportunity to show their support for Filipino artists and makes it easier for makers to connect with people. I’ve always believed in supporting fellow artists from the Philippines because I know how tough the industry is, especially for obscure and independent artists.
