You Can Find These Stunning Filipino Products at the MaArte Fair This Weekend

August marks the month of nationalism – and what better way to kick it off than with the much-awaited annual art fair showcasing all things ethical, eco-friendly, and proudly Pinoy?

Now on its 10th year, MaArte, one of the biggest fundraisers organized by the Museum Foundation of the Philippines, Inc. (MFPI) makes a comeback at the Peninsula Manila – with an added twist.
