Mothering Earthlings x Anthill Fabrics

Nara and I were recently invited to learn more about a lovely collaboration between two local brands: Mothering Earthlings & Anthill Fabrics.

Mothering Earthlings is a one stop online shop for all the coolest baby and kid products in the country. They’re the perfect place to go if you’re in need of a birthday gift for a stylish little human.

They’ve recently tied up with Anthill Fabrics: a creative social and cultural enterprise that aims to help local communities all over the country continue their creation of proudly Filipino fabrics.


Together they’ve created a lovely versatile skirt that can be worn by little girls as young as 1 all the way till their tweens.


The skirts are double sided so they can be used in a number of styles. Here’s Nara strutting around in hers:

Here’s a brief writeup about what makes this collection special courtesy of Mothering Earthlings:

“Each piece in this collection is patched up in vibrant cotton prints and Filipino hand woven cotton fabrics. The fabric accents are Kantarines from Abra, Binakol from Ilocos and Ramit from Mindoro, Philippines. They are meticulously hand woven using scrap or upcylced thread into intricate and elaborate patterns. These artisans celebrate their culture by continuing their living traditions of weaving fabric in the hopes of passing it on to younger generations with much value and appreciation. Mothering Earthlings followed the trail in Anthill where culture meets style.

These skills are also their source of sustenance. Despite aching backs and cramped spaces, these women choose to work in their homes as they are first loving mothers to their children. They finish an average of 5-7 meters a day on their handmade antique looms while juggling household chores to be able to put food on the table. You help promote the preservation of weaving culture and support the sustainability of a community enterprise.”
