Presente by Artefino: Weaving Filipino traditions into festive celebrations

Since 2017, Presente by ArteFino has woven a tapestry of experiences that are unique to Filipino culture.

Apart from offering a curated selection of Philippine-made, handcrafted finds and gift items, the affair brings its message of responsible retailing and purposeful shopping to every Christmas celebration.

It gathers brand partners, patrons and creative collectives in a joyful feast that upholds Filipino core values: creativity, camaraderie, compassion, sense of communal unity, joyfulness and family. 

Ongoing until 3 December, the Fifth at Rockwell is transformed into a festive space that mirrors the distinct colors, textures, sounds and sights of a Filipino Christmas. Creative renders of Simbang Gabi, booths serving bibingka and puto bumbong, parols and other traditional decor will treat visitors to a “Paskong Pinoy.” 

ArteFino has also curated special holiday gift sets (priced between P586 to P3,986) that enhance the gift-giving with a purpose. These will be available online via Holiday collections from brand partners will also carry with them stories of local artistry, boundless creativity and strong bonds forged by community. These are the true gifts and treasures that Filipinos wrap up and place under the Christmas tree this season.

Also new for this edition are shopping guides who can help shoppers maximize their time through four halls of unique finds.
