‘Passion and dedication for Cebuano craftsmanship’ is what makes Cebu handcrafted furniture world class

With the emergence of digital technology in the interior design industry, is handcrafted furniture still relevant?

In a recent event dubbed as “Inspired Design Through Craftsmanship,” it showed that the art of contemporary Cebuano craftsmanship is still proving to be relevant even in this age of digital-driven interior designs.

Held at The Residence at Sheraton Cebu Mactan Resorts, the event pays homage to the design heritage of Cebu, with Detaila Aurora kicking-off the series.

Attended by interior design students, the furniture design exhibit is an interactive demonstration and walkthrough that talks about three key areas in Cebu craftsmanship like rattan, stone lamination, and weaving.
