Established in July 23, 1987, Craft Mill, Inc. is a multi-awarded, Filipino-owned manufacturing firm that takes pride in its environment-friendly creations, its clean, consistent workmanship, & its distinct style that has managed to stay abreast of trends, while still retaining the original character that sets Craft Mill apart from other handicraft producers & exporters also using paper, fabric, leather & natural materials that are indigenous to the Philippines.
Craft Mill boasts of being the first and only one of two handicraft-manufacturers to date, of having a workforce that is a cooperative.
Aside from being a viable business, Craft Mill has embraced as part of its mission, to teach skills to the unemployed members of marginalized communities near its factory, including home-crafts that could help idle housewives to be productive and earn a living. It is probably one of the few handicraft companies with the capability of training and developing groups of subcons in their own factory, before establishing their separate, independent work shops.
Craft Mill has also assumed the task of sharing its sophistication in design and concept with weavers around the archipelago, with the goal of elevating their level of quality, and teaching them consistency and an improved “sense of deadlines”.
