Handurawan was initially created for the rapidly growing film photography community, but has transformed into a vintage/retro memorabilia marketplace to cater to the rising new retro trend that has been going on.

Handurawan will showcase brands like Film-folk, Retro Toy Collections and Wick it! Candles. There will be a lot of brands that will cater to everyone’s preference as the organizers of this event wanted something for everyone during this event. There are also viral tiktok beauty brands that will attend, to showcase and bring local brands to the market.

“Handurawan” is just one example of the beautiful words the bisaya dialect has to offer. As bisaya words like “puhon” and “padayon”  are now being used in mainstream media and on the internet in the present day. The word itself is a perfect way to describe the theme of the event as it looks back or recalls the good old days. 

Handurawan is also supported by the Tourism Office of Angono, One of the family’s from Angono that will be one of the main art gallery contributors is Albert Nicola’s family or as known by the internet as “Asian Cutie”. They are a family of photographers and are very active with the art and photography community in Angono. This collaboration is also a way for Angono to introduce and invite people to their Higantes Festival which will be coming this November.
