For one Php 500 Voucher, you get 15 Purses valued at Php 750*
* TERMS AND CONDITIONS APPLY
It is an initiative to help sustain the livelihood of our salesgirls and partner sewers, after our physical stores were abruptly closed in March due to the pandemic. Our goal is to save the incomes of 13 people and their families, and help give them some financial stability in these extraordinarily difficult times.
Those who joined this initiative by purchasing a P500 Voucher may exchange it for Fifteen (15) Purses (valued at P750). The purses are all cut, assembled and sewn locally. Most of them are made from fabric scraps that we recycle to minimize the waste in our production process.
Each Voucher will be for one time use only, non-transferable, and exclusive of shipping fees. You may purchase as many Vouchers as you want! All Vouchers have no expiry date and may be redeemed for online orders only.
We would like to reiterate that we are not making any profit from this initiative. Through our years in the retail business, we have managed to weather all kinds of ups and downs. But this pandemic is something else. It is unprecedented. And we worry that our salesgirls and sewers, along with thousands of other workers in Manila, will be hit hard the most. We would like to believe that we are fair employers and that during times of need, maasahan nila kami at kayo.
To those who joined #PurseForSewers, maraming salamat :-)
A message to those who already purchased :)
Thank you so much for your support!
Update as of July 13, 2020
The second batch of purses are expected to be finished and posted by end of July. If you would like to redeem non-purse Fab Manila items, kindly email us at so we can send you the coupon code for this.
Update as of June 6, 2020
We have already made available for redemption, the first batch of purses. The voucher code has been emailed to indiviual voucher holders. The second batch of purses is already in production and we hope to release it by mid-July 2020.
Right now, our partner sewers in Cainta, Rizal are still in the process of making 6,000+ purses. Unfortunately, Rizal is still on total lockdown at the moment which means non-essential goods cannot pass through checkpoints. It is not possible yet to send them more fabrics to finish all 6,000+ purses.
It was a blessing in disguise that, prior to the lockdown, we sent them materials for production. This has made all the difference because during quarantine, they were able to continue to sew and make a living. Because you purchased a voucher, you helped make this transition to a new normal possible. As of May 8, 2020 they have already finished about 3,200 purses. We need to send them additional fabric so they can finish more.
The problem is we do not know when the Rizal lockdown will be lifted. But rest assured that we are doing all that we can to finish the purses as soon as possible. Kindly give us a month after Rizal lockdown is lifted so the sewers can finish cutting and sewing fabrics. The next step is attaching of snap buttons and taking photos for posting online. You see, for such a small product, it literally takes a village from start to finish.
We hope you understand and we thank you immensely for your generosity and patience! We would like to be fully transparent so photos/videos will be regularly posted in our social media accounts. Follow us on Instagram and Facebook so you can get first dibs once the purses are posted online!
