The Philippines is home to some of the most beautiful native flowers. Thus, the ukulele’s design is inspired by the different flowers which thrive in the country, such as gumamela, sampaguita, and anthurium.

There are more than 7107 reasons to love the Philippines. Reasons as deep as the ocean, and as colourful as all that call it home. Some reasons fill your ears, some your belly, but most, your heart. You can fall in love with her as fast as a ceres bus, and stay as long as a whale. Her people are bamboo in tropical typhoons, and sunrise warmth and vibrance. No man is an island, but has a million brothers and sisters. These are the reasons we love the Philippines, as honest as the day is long.

The ukulele art represents the simplicity of the Filipinos and abundance of agricultural products in this tropical country. Bahay Kubo is a famous Tagalog folk song and a cultural heritage, which is considered to be a symbol of togetherness.

Warm Embrace
by Kat Banay

I love the fact that the Philippines has so many beaches. They are beautiful and easily accessible. Most locals find it enjoyable to relax with a natural breeze and the sound of the waves in the sea under the shade of coconut trees and this is easy to find in this country. The beach brings out smiles and memories and simply a great happy feeling which we all need in our lives.

From thousands of Filipino brands you can find many or at least one which you love. Filipinos proud of their brands, especially by people hiding behind them.
