Known for their modern yet traditionally grounded merchandise that’s truly Filipino, Piopio collaborates with travel accessory brand Viajecito.

If you haven’t heard of Viajecito, then you’re missing out. A homegrown label founded by Pia Ugarte Garcia-Morera, Marta Garcia-Morera, and Marla Batallones, Viajecito focuses on contemporary and customizable bags and shoes with a heart for travelers.

“Collaboration over competition,” this is what the Piopio brand stands for. Since its conception, founder and creator Paloma Urquijo Zobel has collaborated with a couple of brands and designers like Ej Lagman, Nino Franco, Maison Metisse, and Strange Mercy.

The Piopio x Viajecito collection features Viajecitos splashkits—a multifunction waterproof kit that can be turned into a sling bag or a body bag (depends on your liking), which is big enough to fit your valuables but small enough to fit on your suitcase. Piopio’s Itneg embroidered interchangeable straps which are colorful, funky, and celebratory of our local craftsmanship, stylishly complements the kits.

This collaboration also supports the less fortunate with a part of the profit for every bag sold will sponsor a child’s education.
