Renowned Filipino Manuel Baldemor is the quintessential artist. He is a sculptor, writer, and painter. His works are much sought after by collectors and “owning a Baldemor” is a badge of distinction. On the other hand, local lifestyle brand Beabi provides a wide variety of multifunctional storage accessories that include storage bags and toiletry kits for the modern traveler. The label is known for unique pieces with simple designs that promote clean living. All their items are made from recyclable plastic making it a socially and environmentally responsible enterprise.
For Beabi owners Winnie Go and Willin Chan, collaborating with painter Manuel Baldemor was an easy decision. The latter’s flower series paintings are clean, light and simply joyful. The women of Beabi chose three paintings they felt would appeal to their customers and had it printed on different styles of black tote bags. “Imagine owning your own Baldemor and being able to carry it on your arm,” Willin Chan said at the recent launch of MBaldemorXBeabi at the Ronac Art Center in Ortigas. “Well, Beabi has made it possible and affordable.” Winnie Go was quick to note, “We have only reproduced 500 pieces of each design. For Ph2495, you can be a proud owner of a limited edition Beabi Bag with the artwork of one of our country’s most esteemed painters.”
The three chosen pieces from Mr. Baldemor’s Floral Symphony Collection have the following titles: Flowers are a Joy Forever, Flowers Speak from the Heart and Amazing Grace. All are beautiful prints on stylish bags by Beabi. I must admit it took me a while to choose from the three designs. In the end, I chose Flowers Speak from the Heart which is a vertical print made on a modern satchel that may be held close to the body or one may also opt to use the strap and wear it as a shoulder or cross-body bag.
