During the State of the Nation Address [SONA] on July 25, 2022, President Ferdinand R. Marcos, Jr. said :
"To foster the Filipino brand is to spark our sense of pride and reaffirm our strong sense of identity. The creativity of the Filipino is truly world-class. We excel in arts and culture, new media and live events -- avenues which generate primary and downstream jobs for our creative and talented countrymen."
With his vision in mind, the LIKHA initiative was formed. Its purpose is to upgrade and develop the Philippine weaving industry and other Filipino crafts.
LIKHA’s objective is to transform the Philippines’ textile and craft industry to international standards so that, in time, it will have a positive impact on the lives of our talented artisans.
Our growing community encompasses master craftsmen from all over the Philippines.
