The new normal brings with it new innovations for products and services, doesn’t it? This is why we were so honored to be part of a collaboration team that is adapting with the times, while providing some fun amidst the uncertainty.

Introducing: Our new pouch for the New Normal. According to Monchet Olives other wise known as The Fan Man, “This is our take in providing a bit of humor in this fraying-at-the-edges lockdown. Mom came to me in a dream and asked me to promise that the factory will keep on going— 70 years will not stop us — so please, support us local artisans! We continue to live life with caution, but we need some irreverence. This pouch comes with a mask and abanico to match. And why not?”

The kit comes with a mask, a fan, and a pouch featuring the illustration by artist Reena Gabriel.

Casa Mercedes is a 70 year old business, and known for their high-quality abanico. Being the oldest Spanish fan makers in the Philippines, the family-run Casa Mercedes as a business has seen wars, revolutions, and generations of family holidays and memories. Now on its 3rd generation — which includes generations of employee families who have been making this longtime, proudly Pinoy business possible — , Casa Mercedes is yet again witnessing a unique time in world history, and is in full-swing support of Filipinos in this, too.

The pouches are currently in production and will be out soon. Watch out for it and please support! <3
