Made In GK

Just a couple of blocks from C-5 Road in Taguig, beside the Maria Reyna de los Apostoles Church, you'll find this cute pastel-colored building that houses the GKonomics Fashion Lab and Showroom. Immediately as you get in, you'll fall in love with very useful items made from recycled materials by the Gawad Kalinga communities. I'm recommending these beautiful products as wedding souvenirs or birthday giveaways. You can even make your own design. Truly, there's so much we can do for our country.
