About the Social Business: WVN Home Textiles is a women-owned enterprise that works with women in weaving communities around the Philippines to co-create home and beach accessories using handloom weaving methods.
About the Y&Y Fellow: Angelica Misa gets up every day because of her work at WVN Home Textiles, which is anchored on the continuation of local craftsmanship through human capital. Because of her experience in slow fashion and her interest in the Circular Economy, she has become active in this space, sometimes being asked to speak to communities of like-minded people, such as with MUNI Cultural Creatives, to show others that they can make an impact in their own small ways. She is an active member of the HABI Philippine Textile Council. In less than a decade, she has come from several backgrounds: government, consultancy, and now a social enterprise.
