Our Story

Gawang-Lokal. Homegrown. La Local is a creative, artisanal lifestyle store that sells curated, Filipino-made products in collaboration with local artists and entrepreneurs. It humbly began last February 2018 as it opened its doors in Taft Avenue, Malate, Manila.
Situated in one of the most promising locations in Manila, La Local has already made a name, offering a wide variety of local products that are sustainable, eco-friendly, or produced here in the Philippines. La Local caters to people who want to support local – providing unique, handmade merchandise that benefits both local suppliers and consumers with the goal to flourish the Philippine industry.
Today, La Local aims to continuously promote the craftsmanship of our fellow-Filipinos, strive for a better environment, and fulfill everyone’s growing love to support local.
Grow HomegrownLa Local highlights Filipino makers and their product, being an avenue for showcasing homegrown creation — mga local likha —  that will inspire economical and cultural growth. We aim to grow the love for homegrown brands by promoting quality and selling beneficial Philippine-made products. La Local invites locals and locals-at-heart: make your craft; come be homegrown with us.

Local Likha is Pro-EarthLa Local strives to flourish the local crafting industry. Through eco-friendly Filipino products (plastic-free and reusable), we hope to contribute to making a sustainable environment — a community of worldly locals supporting local.
